CHOCOLATE!!! lol. We have a few traditions but we're not christian.
Not the church
Not extended family
Homemade hot cross buns.
Roast dinner (this year we're having goat).
Sometimes we have a lunch with family but it's pretty much just a long weekend for us. We buy each other chocolate for the indulgent fun of it.
DD is only 8mo so far too young, but when she gets older we'll do egg hunts and will eventually teach her about the history so she's aware and respectful of other peoples beliefs.
Oh and when we were kids my brother and I always built elaborate forts out of folding card tables and bed sheets at Easter. No idea why, just became a tradition! We'd hide our chocolate in there lol.
We're making Easter hats this week and on Sunday we'll be having an Easter Egg hunt and a BBQ with family at our place.
First year the girls will really understand so I'm pretty excited
We're not religious so we do eat meat on Good Friday and I think we celebrate chocolate and the Easter Bunny more for the littlies in our family than anything else.
We spend good Friday watching the RCH good Friday appeal with my entire extended family, eating lots of yummy food (an array of webber roasts among other things) and now there are little kids in the family we do a egg hunt for them. Not much happens for the rest of the weekend for us.
That's right, I forgot, we worship the hot cross bun too
They need to make easter egg hot cross buns
Is there anyone on here who has a more traditional or religious celebration, are there other religious traditions that the average person may not know about?
We are Christians and we go to Church on Friday morning, and again on Sunday morning for a dawn service.
We also do choc and easter buns to celebrate new life (the new life being the resurrection of Jesus Christ).
Often we will spend time with extended family, and just relax and enjoy the break.
Luvmyboys -- I think most of us celebrate more in the Pagan sense without really knowing it!!
The eggs, the rabbit (hare) etc stem from there.
