    We usually try and avoid eating meat on Friday and the Easter bunny comes on Sunday

    We eat meat when we want. We do an egg hunt, and we see family on the sunday. The end.

    We are not religious. The no meat on good friday wouldn't even cross my mind (nice work, catholic schools lol). We do eggs on Sunday and see the family. As kids, we usually went on a holiday.

    We eat whatever we want whenever and just laze around doing nothing, hanging out with the fambam, because everything is closed at easter time. We don't celebrate it.

    DH likes to buy a shiztonne of chocolate eggs because he loves chocolate, but I don't touch them (not a choc fan).

    Fairly laid back here too growing up we would decorate hard boiled eggs and mum would do an egg hunt which I thought was soo cool, it was never a big deal, and my grandma would by my brother and I winter PJs. We wont eat meat on the friday and i remeber working at maccas the amount of filet of fish that get sold !
    This year we are going to do it all when DF gets back from work as he won't be back till te Tuesday after it all.. Win win for me as I'll get all my eggs half price! And dd isn't really old enough yet to understand the whole concept

    We have "Hot Cross Bun Day," and "Chocolate Day." That's really all they are to us... and a guaranteed 4-day-weekend.

    DD doesn't even know (yet) that there's any religious meaning to these days... I'll tell her when she's a bit older that some people believe that, and that's really the only reason we get the day off, etc... but to us, it's all about the hot cross buns, Easter Bunny and chocolate...

    I've never avoided meat during the break either... I'm fond of fish, but DP isn't, so I can't see us having it this year either.

    We have hot cross buns on Good Friday morn (and never at any other time!) and we have fish for tea. We have lamb roast on Easter Sunday and gifts of PJ's Books and a egg hunt.

    We don't do anything celebratory for Easter, we just enjoy the break from work! We may partake in some chocolate eating, but usually it's the eggs my family buy us. We don't go gaga over Easter eggs.

    DS is too young for chocolate, but when he is older we might do an Easter egg hunt or something.

    For the record we are not religious, hence the reason I've mostly talked about chocolate...
