El Paso among Worst Cities to Celebrate Easter In
Apparently, we're not very hippity, hoppity when it comes to celebrating Easter. The list of 2016’s Best Cities for Easter Celebrations is out, and El Paso isn’t one.
According to the list-happy financial website Wallethub, which analyzed and ranked the 100 biggest cities in America, the Sun City is among the worst places to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
Cities were graded based on several factors, including percentage of the population that identifies as Christian, churches per capita, restaurants serving Easter brunch, the number of Easter egg hunt events available, and the Easter Sunday weather forecast.
El Paso's total score of 41.5 was only good enough for a #88 ranking. The one category we scored high in was "Best Easter Weather Forecast." Our expected high of 70 degrees and sunny skies was good enough for a 4th place tie with San Jose, California and Washington, DC.
The only other Texas city that did worse than us was Laredo at #98.
