Easter: How do you celebrate & why?

With Easter coming up, I thought I would do a post to see what you and your family do for Easter and how you celebrate it and why? On a blog I follow, the writer asked her followers do this and as I was reading the responses I was amazed at how different everyone's answers are. In your answer, include if you...
  • Paint Easter Eggs
  • Have/go to an egg hunt
  • Take your kids to see the Easter bunny
  • Go to an Easter church service


  1. I grew up with big Easter egg hunts at my grandparents with all my cousins ! Easter was SO big and fun.
    When I became a parent I tried to have egg hunts, but I lived away from my family so it never really came to fruition.
    Now that I am a grandparent, I would LOVE o have our grandkids anxious every Easter to come to MeeMaw & Pops house for Easter egg hunts, candy, toys and fun.
    AS of now, hhhmmmm, Jay and I open our home to friends, family and faith family on Easter Sunday. We attend church for that is the reason for Easter, and make a big dinner.We buy toys for our grand daughter, and thats about it :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    All the best to you.

  3. I color eggs with my children. I do fill Easter baskets for the younger two, which mostly contain books, or small, inexpensive things. One candy item only. We go to church every Sunday, so Easter service is a must. We do not do the Easter Bunny thing. It's about Christ and we try to stay focused on Him!

  4. I cook a big dinner and we attend an Easter service. I didn't grow up with the bunny and eggs since those things have no relation to Jesus' resurrection. :) So, in our family we just keep the day reserved for celebrating Jesus. Yet, I also don't like to get into the whole "paganized" debate - because that goes nowhere fast and it tends to get "nit-picky". And usually serves no good purpose. So, I think it's an individual decision that each family needs to make for themselves. I am glad that you put this on here, though. It will be interesting to read what others enjoy doing for this great day!

  5. I really enjoyed reading the posts on your blog. I would like to invite you to come on over to my blog and check it out. God bless, Lloyd
