    How do you celebrate Easter?

    Easter is, according to religious doctrine, the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. But in countries with less religious tendencies Easter has become a long free weekend to have a short holiday or be together as a family.

    We have a breakfast that has some sort of symbolism congruent with my family's tradition as Catholics in Poland. We don't go to church or anything though.

    It was the first day of Spring for us and we got out the grill and grilled steaks (78 degrees.)

    Just a fun gathering with family and lots of food. Probably gained like three pounds earlier today.

    Though, this was the first year I didn't get an Easter basket. That's probably a good thing since I don't need the candy, but still, it's a little sad.

    We go to church in the morning, and have the more "secular" festivities later in the day. We generally finish things off with a family dinner at the end of the day, like we would have on Christmas or Thanksgiving.

    Like most parents here, herding children until you are ready to drop dead from exhaustion.

    I celebrate it by working.

    Woke up late, ate, cut some flooring, mowed the lawn, cleaned the pool, had a beer, celebrated the other holiday.

    I went out to dinner, went to Home Depot and bought some plants and got a little dirty.
