The Easter celebration this year was like no other thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, which forced consumers to stay inside their homes to prevent the spread of the virus. There were no egg hunts, family get-togethers, parties, and the like. But this does not diminish the meaning of the holiday. People still commemorated the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. For former Days of Our Lives star Chrishell Stause, it means something more.
