Everyone became so sensitive to religion and are too worried about offending someone these days. A girl can't even carry her pistol anymore when visiting the Cherry blossoms like she could do in the 50s!

It's way less celebratory in feeling than it was in the 1950's and 1960's. I haven't bought a new Easter outfit and hat probably since 1966.

It is whatever you make it!

Unfortunately, we had another power outage early this morning and it has just now come back on.  Many festivities needed to be postponed or at least delayed.  All the Easter lunches at the local restaurants couldn't be held either.

People can be bah humbugs at any time of the year if they really try hard enough.

It is a big deal, but not as big as when my daughter was young. At 15 I could not even get her to make Easter Eggs with me last night. I was thinking of hiding eggs for me to find just to keep the tradition up.

I try to keep up the tradition and my family appreciates it. This year we had a friend of my daughter's from the Ukraine and she shared with us that their Easter is the first of May and they share/exchange a special baked bread, color hard boiled eggs and have a special meal. She loved our Easter egg hunt and will share with her family next year!

It is a "big deal" but I feel like it was bigger when I was younger... New outfit was a must & I remember a lot of hats and gloves at church. Life WAS slower so maybe that was part of it...  Maybe.
