We used to go to our family gathering on Easter but things has changed. So now we just stay home and have a nice meal and enjoyed our day.

Changing situations do cause us to modify our celebrations, don't they. I hope you enjoy your special day together at your home.

I usually make a nice dinner and fix baskets for my husband and daughter. This year is a little different. I did a rebate and recieved an Energizer bunny christmas stocking so I am using it for easter this year. I usually make ham for dinner. Easter is not a really big holiday for us.

I always have easter dinner at my house and all of my family comes over. I have an easter egg hunt for the little kids and they love it. I always put money in the plastic eggs. We have good food and play games outside because the weather will just turning nice. Happy easter

Easter isn't celebrated in the country I'm living in at the moment, so there'll be no vacation time for my husband and me. But we have had some Cream eggs sent over from England, so we'll have a mini feast with them!

On easter Sunday, we hide a lot of eggs for the children to do an Easter egg hunt. We then give them the bigger eggs that can't be hidden. On Good Friday, many families only eat seafood. We used to practise that when I was a child, but we don't now. Also, on the Sunday, we usaed to go to Church, but my husbsnd & I don't do that either. But some members of my famiky & my husbands family do go to Church.

Our whole family will be at my house for Easter. We will attend the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday and then we will attend the Vigil Mass at mid-night on Saturday. Easter Sunday, we will have a family meal and an Easter egg hunt for the children. On Easter Monday, we will go out for a family meal to have a break from all the cooking.

I usually go to a relative's house for dinner and also go the church. We sometimes eat chocolate bunnies and easter eggs, but I don't really care as much for those any more than church and dinner with family.

Easter is very commercialized here in the US, but in our family we usually have a big old party to get together and have fun. I wont be having the party this year but we are going to my mother in laws for brunch and an egg hunt.

Every year, I will bring my girls to a friend's house. All the children will gather together and start hunting for eggs around the garden. They will be given an hour to paint the eggs. Whoever win the contest will be awarded a month supply of fresh eggs. My friends and I need to set aside some money just for these real eggs. :)

We just color some eggs and have some ham dinner. Many go to church and some are there since they only go on another holiday for some reason. At that time we are able to be out and so as a family we tend to work on the garden so we can get planting on time. We know the reason for the season and take care to acknowlege it.

Everything is closed from trusday until tuesday during Easter. A lot of people go to the mountains to skii, or they get their boats on water and celebrate by the sea. My family has always gone to the mountains - we have a cabin there. I am staying home this year
