What about you?

When I was younger my family and I went to church, did an Easter egg hunt then got together with other family members for Easter dinner but as I got older things have changed.
What about you? What did you do for Easter? Did it change for you as you got older?

  • It changed 100%. We dont do family get togethers except for the 4th of july, we usually just hang out with friends do easter egg hunt & bbq. I much prefer it that way!

  • We didn't do a whole lot that I remember - we'd wake up to a small basket of stuff in our doorway, wear our spring outfits for the first time to church (and every Sunday after that til fall), and we'd go to a relative's for dinner - half the time we also celebrated my birthday, as it happened to be on Easter quite often. I don't remember doing any egg hunts, but we may have. Now we just kind of do whatever from year to year - whether it's visiting BIL's family, a big dinner with DH's side or a small one with mine, egg hunt with mine or whatever with his. We don't have much for our own traditions yet.

  • it changed, we do more grown up things. by that meaning, whatever we want!
    i used to have to wear a dress. i hate dresses! And i'd have to hang out with family who were 5 times my age. not fun.
    now i can drink and get crazy without being judged, its great!!!

  • We would go to brunch at my father's parents, then to dinner at my mother's parents. My father's parents moved so it became just mom's parents.
