Since Georgia is under a shelter-in-place order, families can watch television and stream content much more these days. “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown” is a classic and favorite. Check local listings, Hulu or Netflix. This episode can also be accessed via Amazon for $1.99. Many local churches are offering streaming services so worshippers can stay virtually connected. For instance, The Cathedral of St. Philip will host online service at 6 a.m., 8:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.; Ebenezer Baptist Church will do the same at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. And, since it is Easter, families can still dress in their best Easter clothes.
