    Default I hate Easter

    I hate Easter so much! It’s 8am and I’m already nearly to tears and I just want to hide in my closet for the rest of the day whaaaaah!
    I can have 20 people over for Christmas I can do birthdays I can even make an effort for New Years but lord help me I cannot do Easter, every year it’s a fight with DH ... every single year.
    First couple of years because I wasn’t making an effort (my family never really celebrated Easter) then because it was all wrong (eggs should be hidden outside not inside), now I’ve made an effort... there’s an Easter egg/present hunt for every person of the family (except me of course) the kids have a clue on each step that leads them to a present... there’s a brunch spread all this should be starting at 9am... they wake up at 7am and are super excited so I say we’ll let them do their hunt ... DH says no wait for everyone... all he has to do is keep them busy till then... nope... they’ve found half the eggs ... treasure hunt ruined. I honestly feel like I can’t win ...
    RANT OVER THANK YOU AND COME AGAIN LOL

    I don't celebrate Easter with chocolates and egg hunt too. I came from different country and there we go to church in Easter with family, maybe have lunch out, no chocolates, bunnies or eggs. My husband buys chocolate and i don't say no to chocolates, lol, but i told him when the kids are older i don't really know how to do egg hunts or understand the reason behind them. He said he understands and said we'll just maybe join community events so kids don't feel left out. Or no chocolates at all if we can help it, less sugar for the kids...

    @ciaomumma I feel you. When we were kids, we had small eggs from our rooms leading us outside then we’d hunt for a few bigger eggs...nothing over the top. Mum didn’t like us having much chocolate and we never had much of a sweet tooth so as we got older, the amount of eggs reduced and we got new winter pjs.

    I’d be telling hubby that if he wants a fancy delayed hunt, he should do it or distract the kids and put eggs out later.

    I feel for you!! I hope you can enjoy brunch xx

    P.s. my son is 2 and we aren’t doing anything novel for Easter as he has no idea about it. Im sure next year he’ll probably understand more.

    we don’t really do anything for easter. pre kids it was a nice long weekend off work without using up annual leave. good to either go away or get stuff done round the house.

    last 3 years it’s been sort of nothingy, just house bound or go visit dh’s mum and just potter round with ds as he’s been too little to really understand any of it. last year we did the big easter egg hunt but that was it.

    this year he’s 3 and i’ve had a bit of a schedule of easter activities. we aren’t religious at all and i can’t stand the easter bunny, plus ds hates chocolate, but it’s been more to just think stuff up to keep him entertained.

    it’s also our last weekend as a family of 3 so we’ve indulged him a bit and are just savouring it being the 3 of us (despite him being very trying at times lol) before i go into hospy to have belly bub!

    I bought DD a Lindt chocolate set with a bunny and some carrots. That’s it. We don’t do Easter. Really not my thing at all. I do enjoy the days off work though

    I hate it too. It is all always 'on me' to do everything. Then we are supposed to all go to his mothers for lunch, which I hate, cramming so many people into a house the size of my kitchen then expecting all the kids to be angels when they are SO BORED and in a small space. (She wont come here). Plus DH has 4 brothers, none of whom lift a finger but if I go then I'm supposed to be a freaking waitress and dishwasher just because Im female. Irks me to no end. So I refuse to go, which means if he wants to go, he can, but he has to take the kids with him and actually be a parent. So as you can imagine, he is now in a bad mood.
    I do the Easter Egg hunt in the morning and take lots of photos but Im having lunch with a friend whose kids are with her ex husband so she is alone this easter. MUCH rather take the baby (DH cant 'cope' with the baby alone) and go have lunch with her than deal with the inlaws. Im sick of trying to please everyone so this year they can all just suck it up.

    I’ve coped a bit of flack because we did nothing with DD today. We aren’t religious so no church or Easter story and I don’t see the point of giving a toddler chocolate when she isn’t expecting it or around other kids who are. She’s almost 2 but seriously has no idea. We had a nice breakfast together and a family dinner last night but that’s it. She has eaten a couple of little eggs and had the expected sugar rush but I’m not giving her a basket full of them.

    i did an egg hunt for ds yesterday but it was only as a time burner. he found it all in 2 minutes anyway then had more fun trying to unwrap the eggs (but didn’t want to eat them) 🤣
