Qeaster or QEaster (quarantine + Easter)

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

“The @USNavy dropped us an Qeaster egg today” was posted on Twitter by DOQ on April 3, 2020. “Qeaster Sunday #qeaster” was posted on Twitter by Johnny Mosh on April 8, 2020. “Happy QEaster!” was posted on Twitter by @melbelle36 on April 12, 2020.

“QuaranEaster,” “QuarantEaster,” “Quareaster” and “Queaster” 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.

Wishing everyone who’s celebrating a “Hoppy” qEaster weekend (even if it’s not the one we thought we’d be having this year!). Don’t forget to connect with friends and family - fill your heart with love, laughter and hopefully a chocolate bunny or two #staysafe #stayhome

Has anybody made the Qeaster joke, yet? For quarantine Easter. I hope somebody else told their significant others Happy Qeaster.
