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?

I think that was kind of my point.

You stated that "I don't see many non-Christians putting up Christmas trees in their houses or having Santa deliver gifts to their children."

Many non-Christian put up Christmas trees, have Santa deliver gifts and dye Easter eggs because of the cultural not religious aspects.

Yes, those things are linked to the Christian holidays but I think that part of it is only an issue for those that do have a religion that they celebrate.

Christian celebrate because of the religious aspect. Those that other religions do not celebrate because of the religious aspect. Those that have not religion do not care about the religious aspect.

And they chose to do that activity. Didn't hear any complaints when I picked my ds up so I guess no one was unhappy about it.

Do the non-Christians come from Christian backgrounds (ie, parents or grandparents were)? Or are they a different religion?

I agree that they are not the reason for the holiday, but they are the cultural rituals associated with a religious holiday. As such, they are associated with a particular religion.
