Trying to figure out how to split the holiday between my family and my husband's. Although it might go as well as last year, where we said we were doing my family's thing but could swing by later and his grandmother stopped listening after we said we were going to be at my family's thing and didn't include us in the reservations for the restaurant everybody else went to, lol.

My family was never much for Easter since my brother and I hit adulthood (we aren't Christians, anyway) and we declined wanting Easter baskets.

I distinctly remember seeing a Passion Play when I was six and I was thoroughly traumatized by all the blood and torture in the production. Always felt ambivalent about Easter after that. Although it was fun to play Naughty Heathen by sacrificing a chocolate bunny in front of Christian friends.

I don't do anything special, but I do take advantage of the sales on chocolate bunnies the day after Easter.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence host an annual Easter celebration including an Easter egg hunt and a Hunky Jesus contest. After that, I'm headed to the annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel race. link

We don't really celebrate Easter in my family.

I might hunker down with a solid chocolate rabbit and a few feel good movies.

Me and my bf are going to Catholic Mass Saturday night, and then I'll go to protestant church with my parents on Sunday morning.

I also am getting an Easter basket and filling it with Tenga eggs and candy eggs for my bf

I had to cancel plans with my family cuz Uncle Sam needed his money. Ms. Cinnamon's family is not Christian, so she won't be going home to see them either. Maybe we'll just spend the day together, hiding little plastic eggs from the cats and watching them chase the eggs around.

I'm Mediterranean and Celtic, raised Catholic (obviously) so Easter is a big deal with my family.

The thing is my parents are divorced. My father has actually invited my mother to his house for Easter, and she went one year, and intentionally made everyone feel uncomfortable. She picks at my father (even though they've been divorced for decades, she was remarried and she still refuses to get over it) and although he's very polite to her, she's a PITA. She makes everyone uncomfortable. He still invites her every year, though. She usually ends up going to my cousins' which I don't really see as a problem, but she does.

So, every Easter, I get a fucking guilt trip from her, "Well, at least your cousin John is willing to let me be the 3rd wheel at his house." (And IMO, her family can pick up some of the slack.) WTF? We see HER on Thanksgiving and I don't see my dad that day, and he doesn't complain about it. I have Christmas, and Mother's Day (I have not had a restful Mother's Day since I became a mother, because I'm waiting on my mother and his. But, this year, our middle daughter is graduating from University, (whose idea was it to schedule graduation on Mother's Day?) so I don't know what we're going to do.)

When I was a kid, it was a HUGE deal. We'd start eating at about 9:00 (right after Church, High Mass....LONG church) and not stop all day. My cousins and I would have an Easter Egg hunt (one year with chocolate eggs, and my aunt said she was finding eggs into summer) and we had a blast. The families had a feud, so it kind of sucks now. We go to my dad's, which is OK. But, it's mostly my step mom's family. They're nice people, but they're not really MY people. I like the years better when we just go to a fancy restaurant and have a huge buffet. Then I don't have to remember the names of people I really don't know.

I usually make baskets with either real grass or moss and my kids get a few small things and a little bit of candy. (No. That's a lie. TOO MUCH candy. We just threw away some of last year's candy when we cleaned the pantry last week.) I make them up, gather the moss, put it in dirt in the baskets, fill the plastic eggs, (I try to get the Man to help me) and put them on the table for the kids to open in the morning. Usually their boy friends get one, too.

Wow, cool.

I watched my almost 4 year old niece run around like a maniac at my Dad's house.

Hunky Jesus would have been cool.
