We don't celebrate Easter so it's typically just another weekend for us. My mom is visiting for the weekend though and she celebrates it so she brought some things up for the kids and they're going to watch a bunch of movies and stuff.
Oh, that sounds like fun!! I hope you have a great visit with your mom
We don't do much for Easter, though I take the excuse to dye eggs and play outside with the boys. We'll probably find an egg hunt and let Eric get some little toys for it. Laid back, but fun. With no family in town we keep it pretty simple.
DH and I both grew up in extremely religious families. Neither of us are religious now, but we still celebrate the holidays for cultural reasons. I think it's important for our kids to understand holidays and why they are celebrated, but we will leave it up to them if they want to accept the religions of our families. We also do all the fun stuff too, but I think it's important for them to know why, if that makes sense at all!
My mom dyes eggs at her house every good friday. It's a huge tradition and half the town turns out for the egg dying party. It started as a church thing; she invited members of the congregation over before good friday service, and they would dye eggs. It just kept growing. So we went to that, which we live three hours from my mom now, so it was nice to go home to visit.
For Easter Sunday we didn't do much other than the typical easter basket and egg hunt. We actually got to have our egg hunt outside, which is unreal around here! Since I've never done it outside before, I didn't realize that the chocolate would melt in the eggs.... what a mess. We had dinner with DH's family, which really is no big deal since we live with them and eat dinner with them every day, but we did eat in the dining room with the nice china, and we grilled steaks (again, grilling is not typical Easter activities!!! usually whatever we have needs to be baked- usually it is ham)
