Neither Ryan nor I am particularly religious. In fact he's very much against the idea. I imagine being raised Catholic has something to do with that. My family usually has a nice meal on the fancy china, and my mom would get us a chocolate bunny or something. When we were kiddos we'd get a basket with a toy, a book and lots of candies. Those were great days. I remember the year I got a 101 Dalmation toy! So cute!
Anyway, Ryan's family has a big Sunday meal, too, which we'll be going to this year. Much like most holidays, it's an excuse for relatives to gather together and just have a grand ol' time chatting. I'm not even sure if any of them go to church or not.
When we have our own family, I think I'll revive the Easter basket tradition because it was totally awesome. I also look forward to egg hunts and coloring. In fact I might dye some eggs this year because why the hell not, right?
Now here's a picture of me and my siblings getting ready to head out on Easter morning (back when we did go to church). Sorry about the photo quality - I need to re-scan it one of these days.
Man, that was such an awesome dress.
