  • It means a long weekend for my husband from work and visiting with family. There are treats but we didn't really do Easter egg hunts when I was growing up - just a filled egg. We don't attend church or anything although I am fully aware of the significance of Easter to Christians. Some years, like this one, this entire week is full because it's also Passover.

    In a nutshell, I'd say family and wonderful food. It's a celebration of new life.

  • Easter is more of a myth celebration since I am a unitarian christian. On Easter, I like to dress my son up in a nice suit matching his dad's suit, be around family, and make bbq rabbit, deviled eggs, and collard greens for dinner.

  • Like the PP, I'm a Unitarian Christian too (at least in that I reject the concept of the Trinity or the idea that Jesus was divine - I also reject the idea of the Atonement or a literal Resurrection). Easter, to me, symbolizes the commitment Jesus had to his message of love and compassion to see it through even to death, and the way that his message lived on, even after he died. Not the most "orthodox" way of looking at it, but given as I don't believe that he came to die for our sins (especially in a literal sense), that's about the only way I can look at it.

  • (oh and in my previous statement, I was referring to Unitarian in the non-Trinitarian sense, lol, just to be sure I clarified, if it needed it..)
