As per the title really do you do anything special for easter?

Easter egg hunt! Mass for H and the children and a yummy roast dinner. That's all though. We at often on holiday around Easter so it gets overshadowed!

I'd normally spend lots of time at church as it's completely my favourite tine of year. My church had a wooden cross and on easter Sunday each member brings flowers to put into it and the finished results are just perfect. My mom normally then does a huge turkey dinner for the family. This year I don't feel comfortable taking E ti Church as she'll cry a lot but am hoping to spend it with family down south as my H is away. There is also an easter bonnet parade at my nans nursing home we may pop and support though again E is too young to take part.
I can wait until E is old enough to do an egg hunt. And to sit through church. And to bake easter cakes.

Church in Good Friday, then eater eggs on Easter Sunday, roast lamb dinner which I'm soooo looking forward to. Then probably more Easter eggs. Lazy day Easter Monday.i think we are going to roll our eggs down the hill near us this year.

I go to mass on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Over the last few years we have made a tradition of doing an Easter egg hunt with the kids. We tend to have lunch with the family on the Sunday. This year it will be at the in laws. I've given up chocolate, biscuits and sweets for lent so hope to have my first taste on chocolate again

We may brave mass this year as N is a little less wild. Or we may go away for a mini break somewhere.
Family meal on good Friday, always fish based, church on Easter Sunday and an egg hunt (with clues from the Easter Bunny) at home.

We don't normally do anything but now the boys are getting bigger we probably will. This year we are going to Wales for 3 nights in a caravan for a little holiday. Our first one in a caravan, quite looking forward to it

Nothing usually, we're not religious at all. Mil has invited us for lunch but I'm trying to get out of it as we've got much much to do in the house, the long weekend is perfect opportunity.

Eat Easter eggs!
We're going for a breakfast with the Easter bunny on the Saturday which includes an Easter egg hunt, but that's mainly because it's my friend's little boys birthday party.

When we were children we'd do a walk with the cross for church every Good Friday. It would start one side of town and men would take turns carrying it across town where it was erected and mass was said. We'd also attend church for the Stations of The Cross service.
Now we don't do anything at all. Just take advantage of the long weekend.

When i was a kid it would be lots of church going (feet washing on maundy thursday i think, no mass on saturday but still a service and then big guns on easter, that one where the gospel has a few lines where we all join in). Then we'd go home and my brother and i would hide eggs all round the house for our (much) younger sisters to find and then we'd have my grandparents come over for a big roast dinner. As we got much older and i moved out it sort of petered out, and my mum often goes to Lourdes on a jumbulance with sick children at easter.
At the moment we don't do much, in fact this year hubs is working the sunday and monday and i'm driving up to banbury to visit a mate. When we have bubs though, i'd like a similar tradition thing. I think mum might stop going to Lourdes if i hosted a big meal.

Nothing at all.
We're not religious, so don't go to church. The kids will get eggs, and we'll probably go to my Mums for dinner, but i usually go on Sundays anyway.

This year it coincides with my daughter's sixth birthday (how did that happen?). We have the in laws coming over on Good Friday to celebrate.
Then on Easter Sunday we have my family coming over. Just need to work out how we're going to squeeze everyone round the table for lunch!
Easter Monday I shall probably need a lie down to get over it all.
We normally see family at Easter. Sometimes we go to church but thats more for my parents.

I love Easter and we have quite a few traditions as a family, Mum always does fish for dinner on Good Friday and I like to go to church Easter Sunday. This year is extra special as it's E's Naming Day on the saturday so really looking forward to it x

Not religious here either but we do indulge in an Easter egg/present hunt.
19/03/2013 at 12:49
We don't really do anything as aren't religious at all. This year H's Birthday falls on Easter Sunday so we're having a big family roast lunch on the Sunday.
Chocolate Eggs on Easter Sunday.
Other than that we just enjoy the long weekend.

We're not religious either.
I'm organising a fund raising easter egg hunt this saturday, no idea what we will do easter weekend.

I love easter. Fish for supper on good friday, family day on saturday, easter egg hunt for the kids (and the big kids!) on easter sunday morning, followed by church and a roast dinner. We usually go to north norfolk for a week so have lots of outdoor time.
19/03/2013 at 20:43
Nothing usually but next year I hope to do an Easter egg hunt, think I is too small this year.
My sister is home for the weekend so plan to sit, eat chocolate and gossip!
