Queaster (quarantine + Easter)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in quarantines, and this occurred on the Easter 2020 religious holiday on April 12, 2020. “Queaster” (quarantine + Easter) is a portmanteau word that was coined.

“What kind of rules should govern the inaugural Queaster Egg Decorating Contest?” was posted on Twitter by Better Left Cast! on April 6, 2020. “#Ikeepmyselfsane by inventing a new holiday called Quarantine Easter” was posted on Twitter by Troy Quarantingly Hewitt also on April 6, 2020. “*Queaster” was posted on Twitter by SOSA 5IVE on April 7, 2020. “So what’s everyone doing for the #QuEaster Week(end)?” was posted on Twitter by Tragik-T VAX WEST on April 9, 2020.

“QEaster,” “QuaranEaster,” “QuarantEaster” and “Quareaster” are similar terms.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Wikipedia: Easter
Easter, also called Pascha (Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

#Ikeepmyselfsane by inventing a new holiday called Quarantine Easter. Or, Queaster, pronounced “kweester”.  So far I have a Queaster egg decorating contest without rules, and the joyous Queaster Feasting, which needs a menu. Also, prob need some new traditions.
