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 should have said, "I don't see many non-Christians ( with no Christian cultural heritage) putting up Christmas trees in their houses or having Santa deliver gifts to their children."

DO the non-Christians you know who do the cultural aspects of Easter and Christmas come from a Christian heritage or do they come from a different religion?

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


Not generally.

Does that account for people who were not christian growing up and then married a christian? I know many jewish people who married christians and they celebrate christian traditions (while not changing over their religion).

I've never worked anywhere that observed Good Friday as a holiday and/or closed business for GF. And most of the places I have worked have been private businesses.

Actually, I do know several Jewish families who do celebrate the "secular" aspect of Christmas by decorating Christmas trees but they don't do the gifts b/c their kids already get gifts for Hannukah. Just because something is associated with a religious holiday does make it a religious tradition.
