Are you a Chreaster? (That's someone that attends church only on Christmas and Easter?) Or do you go to church more often? Less than half of American adults say they planned to go to church on Easter this year. While that's two percent higher than last year, it's still lower than it has been historically. 

As life returns to normal following the COVID-19 pandemic, slightly more Americans expect they’ll celebrate Easter Sunday in church.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of American Adults say they will attend a church service to celebrate Easter this year. That’s up from 40% last year. Forty-two percent (42%) say they won’t be in church for Easter, down from 47% a year ago, while another 16% are not sure.
