1. Do you celebrate Easter?

2. If so, what is on your menu (or the menu of where you are going)?

3. If so, how much do you usually spend on an Easter Baskets for the kids? (asking because I keep reading how Easter is turning into Christmas with kids asking for high priced items)

4. Are you working on Good Friday?

1. Do you celebrate Easter?

Yes. We go to Easter Vigil and then leave out carrots for the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny hides eggs and fills the kids baskets.

2. If so, what is on your menu (or the menu of where you are going)?

It is just the 4 of us for dinner (maybe a few family members for dessert, not sure yet). I am making Lasagna (with meatballs, salad and bread, not sure of dessert yet).

3. If so, how much do you usually spend on an Easter Baster for the kids? (asking because I keep reading how Easter is turning into Christmas with kids asking for high priced items)

I try and just get candy and some small items. Maybe $20 per child.

4. Are you working on Good Friday?

My company is open but I am taking off as my kids are on spring break.

1. Do you celebrate Easter?

Don't really know what celebrating Easter means. I do plan on attending church.

2. If so, what is on your menu (or the menu of where you are going)?

Nothing special on the menu. Normal meal.

Been a long time since I have done an Easter basket. Don't know how much I actually spent. Aside from candy they usually got a book. Some years they got a new dress but that had more to do with the good sales at that time than buying them an Easter dress.

4. Are you working on Good Friday?

Don't know yet. Production is not running so I could easily take it off but it would be unpaid unless I took a vacation day. But if I do come in I would only have about 2 hours of work any way so am still undecided.

1. Do you celebrate Easter? Yes and no. We do more of an spring festival/ostera celebration.

2. If so, what is on your menu (or the menu of where you are going)? We are going to brunch at a family's house we know from church.

3. If so, how much do you usually spend on an Easter Baster for the kids? (asking because I keep reading how Easter is turning into Christmas with kids asking for high priced items)

I don't buy Easter Basters. Wouldn't basters be more appropriate for Thanksgiving? We give the boys some eggs filled with chocolate and a chocolate bunny for all. We usually give them a spring thing- like seeds, a hoe, gardening gloves. Things like that.

4. Are you working on Good Friday? We don't celebrate "Good Friday" DH plans on going to work. I still have the boys as it is spring break.

Interesting, my BIL works for the State of Connecticut and they get Good Friday off. It's funny because growing up in MA, I never heard of people getting Good Friday off. I know in the south many schools get Eater Monday off, but I don't know if they also get Good Friday off too.

The schools here are generally not in session, but they don't call it "Good Friday"; it's a teacher work day or somesuch. They can't, due to separation of church/state, call it Good Friday or Easter Holiday.


Our kids have school, however, as we had a snow day last month, so they're making it up tomorrow.

I work for a state university and we have Good Friday off. It's "Spring Holiday." Spring break is this week for the students, but they (and I) are back on Monday.
