    Easter Traditions., what are they?

    Growing up we would get an Easter Basket with candy in it. Our grandparents would do an egg hunt. I would get a new dress and maybe a new hat.

    This year I picked up a dress for Zoe.

    If you have a tradition, what is it?

    Usually an Easter basket then an egg hunt at my grandparents. I also would get a new dress every year. Which is weird because I'm a dude.

    When I was a kid would get an Easter basket with candy in it too but would have to find it. Then would go to grandparents house for dinner with all aunts & uncles & cousins.

    Family meals are pretty big. I think we usually had ham.

    It's the annual celebration to acknowledge the last time anyone in my extended family will be stuck in the same room with each other until Thanksgiving.

    Re: Easter Traditions., what are they?

    We use hubby's tradition of also hiding the entire basket, plus we hide plastic eggs with goodies. We change that up every year depending on the age of kids. I used to be organized hen we only had 2 and each girl could only find certain colored eggs. Now we'll have the little ones (under age 3) collect 10 eggs each upstairs (with goodies like goldfish, teddy grahams, etc inside) and the big girls will have to each find 12 eggs downstairs (with money and various chocolate candy inside). The older girls each have a golden egg to find--this year those have $5 in them.

    Depends on my motivation level if we color eggs. This year was a no-go because one came down with strep yesterday and the oldest had softball and was a volleyball helper today. We also have a neighborhood outdoor egg hunt that we missed this year because of those reasons. Usually we spend Easter at home because our school doesn't have Fri or Mon off, neither does hubby.

    We have my wife's italian family's "sausage egg business." Grazianos bulk sausage browned with cottage cheese added and then mix in wisked eggs and stir it all together until the eggs are cooked and it thickens a little.

    Oh man that sounds good as long as you survive the subsequent heart attack.
