100 Easter Card Messages: What to Write in an Easter Card


Bunnies, chicks, flowers, eggs – you know what holiday we are talking about? Correct, Easter is the holiday that rings in the spring and with it come all kinds of cute animals, yummy surprises and pretty flowers.

Easter can fall on any date between March 22 and April 25, but will always be celebrated on the Sunday after Paschal Full Moon. While it is technically a biblical holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, many people around the world celebrate Easter regardless of their religious beliefs. Whether you celebrate Jesus being reborn or the Easter Bunny hiding Easter Eggs in your backyard, the holiday is all about new beginnings!

What to Write in an Easter Card

Alright, by this point we have established two things: Easter marks new beginnings and it can be quite difficult to find the right words when sending holiday cards. Some general things to keep in mind when writing cards for Easter is that it’s a happy holiday. Be cheerful and focus on the good times ahead (winter is finally over!).

Since it is a religious holiday, consider including a fitting quote or Bible verse for your fellow Christians. If you have any Jewish friends or family, remember that they celebrate Passover at the same time and may appreciate you wishing them a happy Pesach, the Hebrew word for Passover (in case you didn’t know, this holiday marks Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt).

Whoever you decide to send an Easter card to this year make sure that your message is personalized. After all, that’s what makes a greeting card extra special!
