    Default How do you spend Easter Sunday?

    We usually do a Easter egg hunt for the kids in the morning and then have to go to a lunch (usually rotated location) at a family members house but SIL'S extended family are always there, making it nearly 20 people.

    I'm honestly getting jack of it. I told dh last night i have no interest in going this year, Christmas is enough and between doing everything for our 3 young kids 99% of the time, i just can't be bothered. I know MIL will get all huffy about it and i don't give a rats. I'm sick of it being ''expected'' that we attend every single thing. I'm tired. I have a lot on my plate. and nobody gets it.

    how do you spend yours?

    We have no family near us so don't have any obligations. I'll probably do an Easter egg hunt and then it'll just be like another day at home. Hopefully one involving a really long nap😜

    I will be working this year both Saturday and Sunday night so will need to sleep sometime throughout the day. Usually it's just a quiet day for us anyway. I will organise kiddos stuff before I go to work Saturday night and he will wake up to it scattered around the house. He loves finding the eggs hidden.

    The past few years it has really depended on whether I have had to work or not as to what we do. I do know he has an egg hunt with 2 of his cousins so I will sleep when he is off doing that.

    We used to do an egg hunt. This year we're going on a holiday instead. Chocolate is not a treat in my house. It's a necessity. So we're going to just do holidays or outings instead from now on.

    We often head away for the weekend. We aren't religious so for us Easter is about bilbies, bunnies and chocolate. We start the day with an egg hunt and usually just spend the day eating copious amounts of choccie. This year we aren't going anywhere so we'll have the fam over for lunch.

    I agree OP, I feel as though we've just only gotten over Christmas, plus dd had her birthday, honestly how many big days do you need?

    As we are not religious Easter usually meant double pay if working or DH having a long weekend lol.

    As dd is old enough now it'll be about chocolate and hunting for eggs in the morning, but apart from that it'll be just another typical day

    I'm already into the hot cross buns, no point waiting

    This year we will be heading to my parents for an Easter egg hunt for my kids and their cousins. Last year we went to the in laws. We will most likely have lunch there and relax for the day. Monday is usually a day of relaxing at home to recover!

    Easter is very special to us.

    On holy Thursday after church make a huge batch of hot cross buns for Friday. Then on Friday between church services I get the kids to make coloured boiled eggs.

    Saturday we do Easter craft.

    Sunday morning we have breakfast with the family. We eat the coloured boiled eggs made the previous day. Then Everyone gets winter pajamas and a book each. The Easter Bunny will leave the kids a library bag each this year with one small chocolate egg each.

    Then it's church. Then home to a big family lunch. Our family gives up meat, sweet treats and alcohol for lent so I try and cook everyone's favourite meals. Then we spend the afternoon being silly and playing games.

    Easter Monday we visit family.
