Easter and Non-Christians..

I am not religious but I celebrate and loooove Christmas. I always will celebrate it, and I know there are many people who aren't religious but who celebrate it anyway.

I've been celebrating Easter every year with my daughter (who is 3 this year). I'm just wondering if Easter is also a holiday that many non-religious folks also celebrate. I grew up in a Catholic home.. but I don't believe in god or any religions and neither does my fiance. I guess it just never occured to me to take out the fun kid stuff  just because I don't believe in the religion. To me they are just fun traditions that I've been doing since I was a child.

So.. if you are not a Christian, or not religious at all.... is Easter something you still celebrate? Or just Christmas... or do not celebrate either holiday?

You realize almost all Easter traditions are pagan right?

we celebrate it our own "heathen" way.  All hail the Bunneh!!

Eggs and bunnies and jelly beans have nothing to do with Jesus.

We also celebrate the secular Christmas.

I'm just like you. I grew up catholic, but am agnostic now and it never occurred to me to not celebrate easter with my dd. We color the eggs and hide them and do the easter basket. It's fun :) But we don't go to church or anything like that.

What?!  You not getting holiday pay has nothing to do with non-Christians recognizing their own version of a holiday.

Your rambling makes no sense.
