It's Easter Sunday, and before we begin our daily activities, we may need some coffee to jump-start our day. But is Starbucks even open today?

Most Starbucks will be open today. Some, however, will be running on special holiday hours. So it will be important to click here and check the hours of a Starbucks near you before heading out to grab a grande dark roast.


Other restaurants and chains that are expected to stay open today include McDonald's, Applebee's, and TGI Fridays.

What Else Is Open on Easter

The US Post Office will be closed, naturally, as the post office is closed each Sunday. If you're missing some last minute Easter eggs for the kids to run and find in an Easter egg hunt, you're in luck because Walmart will be open on Easter. (Walmart typically only strays from its schedule on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve.)

However, Macy's and Target locations have informed Fortune that they will be closed on Easter Sunday this year.

Meaning of Easter

Easter is one of the most important and oldest celebrations in the Christian Church. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ which is believed, in the Western Church, to have happened between March 21 and April 25. In the words of "All About Jesus Christ", Jesus' resurrection symbolizes that eternal life is granted to those who believe in him.

Many families celebrate Easter with a variety of traditions. Painting eggs is a common activity for those with children (egg painting kits are offered at a number of pharmacies). Others may enjoy an Easter egg hunt or bake rabbit-themed goods to pass out to friends and family.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
