  • I never cared for it before, now that I have kids I love it for the egg hunts. My kids have a blast. So its neither chocolate or religion for me.

  • I guess the fact that we are celebrating spring and the kids love to dye Easter eggs.

  • I love dying Easter eggs. I also think, from a historical and religious perspective, it is an important holiday. For Christians it is the day that Jesus rose from the grave. Sometimes it sounds so strange to write things like that, but I do believe.

    I love my faith and that this day that symbolizes "all things new" to me. Whatever faith you espouse, I think getting out of your rut, embracing a new way of thinking and living that is more loving (to yourself and others) is important.

    From a historical stance, I find it fascinating that this is a Christian holiday but it has been interwoven with Paganism....Ishtar was the goddess of fertility and that is where "Easter" came from. Also, all the eggs, bunnies you see. :-)

  • As a kid I loved getting the new dresses and the egg hunts. With my girls (who don't love the new dresses so much, but are creative) we do a new way to color eggs each year. They really like that. For us Easter isn't a BIG holiday and I could really do without the horrible family dinners at my MIL's house.
