Would you let your child go to a Birthday party on Easter Sunday?

My sons 5th birthday is on April 4th, he wants to have a bowling party at our local bowling alley.  Great.  I call today to book his party, my SO is off the weekend of the 6th&7th....he gets every other weekend off, but every Sunday off.

They have all tournaments that weekend so an't book his party....so I figured book it on the 31st without realizing that was Easter Sunday....

Would you take time out on Easter Sunday to take your child to their friends birthday party?  I don't think anyone will...but who knows....


I'm pretty sure I'll to rebook it....but that means I'd either have to book it for the 24th of Marh but they only have later openings for parties on that date so the only other option would be to book it on April 14th which is 10 days after his birthday...hmmmm


ETA:

I wouldn't have my son go to a birthday party on Easter either so I knew what the general answer would be. I wondered if everyone felt this way.  We'll just schedule it on the 14th of April....only 10 days after his actual birthday so it's not that big of a deal :)

No, I wouldn't. We always spend Easter as a family at my parents house.

my youngest's birthday is on Easter this year, I don't think anyone will come to a party on that day. so we are doing her party a week earlier. that's a day you want to spend with family. imo.

Well, yes I would.  Looks like I might be in the minority.

I would but that's cuz we don't do anything special on Easter besides the Easter basket stuff first thing when they wake up.

I figured I was planning early....thought a month would be plenty of time.
