Do you buy your kids new outfit for Easter?

I did when my kids where little.

  • ALWAYS. As matchy as humanly possible :) they're still "little" though.... 6 and 4 1/2

  • No. I don't like to buy outfits that she can only wear once. This year I actually did buy a dress for her to wear, but its not an Easter dress so she can wear it again.

  • No, although my youngest is going through a dress shirt and tie phase, and this time of year, I can find lots of outfits for him like that.

  • Not just for the one day, no. I typically buy them their spring church outfit, and they can wear it for the first time on Palm Sunday (the week before Easter, when the kids all sing in church). It's nothing super-fancy, and not Easter-specific, and they can wear it through the summer if they want (if it's a dress, they get a little sweater over top). I would never buy a special outfit just for the one day.

  • I didn't buy any Easter clothes for my son, but I'll probably buy cute little dresses for my unborn at least until she's three?

  • Back home I did.. Easter is a religious holiday to my fam (I don't share their beliefs) so everyone is "required" to dress up. Since we're so far away I have them where cute clothes to take pics with easter bunny but nothing special.

  • Yes, but it's one of their Sunday outfits that they'll wear to church throughout the summer, not something they will only wear once. I'm 37 and still buy myself a new dress and shoes for Easter!

  • I did their first year just because they were cute. I don't bother now because we don't go anywhere and don't have friends or family over.

  • Yes. But nothing over board. And we normally have so many weddings or family pictures that we get a lot of use out of their clothes...
