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?

You said that you can't imagine your kids being invited to participate in a ritual that would make them feel uncomfortable or conflict with your religious tradition. Well, for many people, celebrating aspects of Christmas oe Easter is uncomfortable and conflicts with their religion, which is one reason those activtes need to be confined to private rather than public celebrations.

It IS very long but I think it is beautiful with the candles and the baptisms (many adults who become very emotional as they understand what they are doing).

My son dyed eggs in camp yesterday. Not all the children there celebrate Easter.

My son dyed eggs at camp yesterday (not all the children celebrate Easter) and they had a spring party last Friday which he came home with a homemade easter basket (with bunny on the front of it) filled with plastic eggs and candy (not all the children in his class Easter also).

i agree, it is a moving experience esp for those who are converting.

Why were they dyeing eggs if not in celebration of Easter? Is this something that goes on every Friday at camp?

I will never forget one woman, probably in her late 30's one year who was getting baptized. She was just beaming and so happy to the point of tears. Every.one in the church was either crying or teary-eyed. Just so beautiful.
