The four day Easter bank holiday weekend is almost here, however across the UK it will be a second Easter spent in lockdown. There are restrictions on socialising, leaving home and which businesses are open, with the Government cautiously easing rules in stages.
Easter Sunday falls on April 4, just more than a week away, with bank holidays on Good Friday, April 2 and Easter Monday, April 5.
While weekends away are still off the cards, many Brits may be preparing for the occasion with chocolate Easter eggs, lavish Sunday dinners and hot crossed buns.
Foremost Easter is a Christian celebration, with church services to commemorate the death and subsequent rising of Jesus.
However, lockdown rules may mean many have to celebrate at home, with some churches showing live services.
