Easter? by johnnythemonkey on 20 March 2007 1:41pm
Does anyone make a big celebration of Easter? My brother-in-law is Greek and over there it is as big a celebration as Christmas,with family travelling from all over to be together.
Although I am not religious,I think it is a shame that over here most kids only think of it as a time to get chocolate eggs. (much as I did!)

If your not religious,you just eat chocolate and go to the pub in N Ireland! A bit like the weekend cos it was St Patricks Day- Hoorray!!

Basically I just think of it as another holiday and a celebration of spring - which btw begins tomorrow here in the northern hemisphere!!

Of course that it is also a chocolatefest doesn't come into it...well, ok, it does!!! ;-)

Sorry - no religion allowed.

This year our eldest grandaughter will have her 16th birthday on Easter Sunday and she is spending the w/e with us.

We used to go to church but sadly that has just died away. We have a big dinner and give gifts though. We also still color eggs!

We used to celebrate Easter in my family, but now that I'm 19 and my brother's 21 we don't. We still get a little gift from our parents, though.

Depends if I'm at my mom's or dad's. At my Mom's we either go to visit her family, or we just stay home and have a big dinner and some cake and jelly-beans, I'm also 19 and still recieve an "Easter Basket" from my mother. lol! At my dad's we'd probably have my grandparents over for a big dinner in the dining room with sweets and jelly-beans. It's not very religious at either of my houses though, maybe we'll watch Life of Brian. lol!
