People in Canada are doing the most heartwarming things for others this Easter
People in Canada may be social distancing this Easter, but it hasn't stopped Canadians from coming up with creative ways to make the day just a little more special for others.
Across the country, Canadians are going out of their way to spread a little love to their family, friends and neighbours this Sunday — from a safe distance of two metres away, of course.
This Easter Bunny was spotted waving to kids in Calgary from the back of a pick-up truck.
I don't know what criteria @AvenueMagazine is going to use this year to determine its Best Neighbourhoods, but surely having someone volunteer to dress up as the Easter Bunny and drive around waving to all the kids is up there. @Tuscany_Calgary pic.twitter.com/1Vpr4yphrA— Erin Stang Chrusch (@erinchrusch) April 12, 2020
And this Easter Bunny was caught on camera cruising around Prince Edward Island.

This friendly dinosaur stopped by their neighbour's lawn to drop off some Easter eggs.
Our neighbours know our oldest child loves dinosaurs so they had one of their kids wear their Halloween costume and drop off some Easter eggs ❤️ pic.twitter.com/qZg1s8HIzf— Sarah Elder-Chamanara (@sarahelder) April 12, 2020

In Newfoundland, a journalist put smiles on his parents' faces when he stopped by to celebrate.
Easter Sunday (with physical distancing) and my parents. So nice to actually see them, however strange the circumstances. Mom and I put our hands up to the glass door. Dad and I talked about the public debt. (Very cheery!) Love them, and will protect them. pic.twitter.com/W4wgjdRpJz— John "Indoor Cat" Gushue ✏️ (@JohnGushue) April 12, 2020
While some Canadian parents learned how to use technology so they could wish their children a happy Easter from a distance — even if it took a good 30 minutes.
My mom texted me “happy Easter” in all caps with a string of emojis— Andrea MacRae (@andrealmacrae) April 12, 2020
I can only imagine that took her at least 25 minutes to type
Volunteers at the United Gospel Mission in Vancouver even spent part of the day giving away 1,200 Easter dinners to Canadians.
Happy Easter! This weekend staff @ugm wearing masks and face shields are Servíng more than 1200 Easter Ham Dinners to those who may not otherwise get to celebrate 🎉 Fun fact, this guest came for a meal AND also donated while he was here! Nothing says #Easter quite like that. pic.twitter.com/wBiLPMNWG5— Jeremy Hunka (@JeremyHunka) April 12, 2020
It may be an unusual Easter Sunday, but people in Canada are proving that the kindness and generosity our nation is famous for remains unchanged.
