    It does. I didn't realise people ate seafood at Easter! I'm guessing that might be an Aussie thing, as I don't know of that happening in England.

    I didn't know people got drunk at Easter either! I thought it was all about the chocolate (if you take the religious part out, of course).

    All this time... I could have been having champagne and prawns... sigh... Maybe next year...

    We brought lot and lots of seafood had a big seafood dinner last night at mums. But cause my bil parents own a fish and chip shop we got everything including fresh snapper and prawns for 10 adults and 8 kids for $50 not bad. Prob spent $40 all up for everyone on Easter eggs and have brought no alcohol.

    I spent about $25 on chocolate/jellybeans and didnt buy any seafood or booze. Had one drink yesterday afternoon when a friend came over.

    I plan on buying my fish on tuesday before work as i rrally want fish but couldnt afford to buy fish to feed a friend and her son as well.

    I haven't bought any of the above, but have been given several eggs and bunnies.

    I was like 'I didn't know Easter was a "drinking" holiday?' then realised every holiday in Australia is a "drinking" holiday.

    Every day where I'm from is a seafood day, lots of gout too...

    Doesn't surprise me. I'd probably spend $1 million on Easter eggs if I had the money = D

    No, it doesn't surprise me.
    I spend $0 on alcohol, seafood and eggs this year. I did buy quite a few hot cross buns though...

    About $1000.
    We have spent for Easter Sunday lunch: some perspective, it's about $25 per head, including drinks, nibblies, mains, desserts and chocolate eggs, decorations, flowers.
    Obscene? Perhaps.
    I will certainly take that criticism.
    I hope everyone enjoys it, we've worked pretty hard.
