Quareaster (quarantine + Easter)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in quarantines, and this occurred on the Easter 2020 religious holiday on April 12, 2020. “Quareaster” (quarantine + Easter) is a portmanteau word that was coined.
“Happy Quareaster” was posted on Twitter by Kire. on April 12, 2020. “Happy Easter! #quareaster” was posted on Facebook by Amanda Loyd on April 12, 2020.
“QEaster,” “QuaranEaster,” “QuarantEaster” and “Queaster” are similar terms.

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.
Happy Quareaster.

Happy Easter! #quareaster
My quareaster combo, thinking there was a time when Jesus gained more popularity than Marcus Aurelius.
No empire lasts forever, change is constant.
