Jesus is alive! Hallelujah! Very Happy

On a more politically correct note: Merry Easter, everyone!
(is it merry or happy? I never know Very Happy )
Anyways, do you, guys, celebrate Easter? The Christian way? Some traditional way? Some other way?

Do you, for instance, paint eggs or smth?
Also, if you can, translate the greeting! (I dare you!)

Latviešu: Priecīgas Lieldienas!

Christian way!
My family hasn't been doing much in the way of holidays, so no eggs or whatever. (Not that the whole eggs-and-bunnies thing makes any sense anyway.)

(It's happy Easter, 'merry' is for some reason reserved for Christmas only.)

Happy Zombie Jesus day! I don't really celebrate Easter. Did the eggs and bunnies version as a kid, but now it's just a Friday off. I am celebrating today, though, because it happens to be the day that my mother returns from a long trip to the other end of the country. I think "merry Easter" works just as well as "happy Easter"; I'm fairly certain I've heard both versions.

Happy Easter!

I'm used to bunnies and eggs and candy.

For some reason my daughter, born in Michigan, and raised by me in Michigan, thinks Easter should be a time of gifts, kind of like Christmas; Easter baskets roughly equivalent to stockings "hung on the chimney with care in the hopes that St. Nicholas soon will be there".

This year, though, we didn't do any of that.

I did go to church to see my daughter and ex-wife perform in the Easter sunrise service. I don't do that every year.

This is my first Easter as an "out" atheist.

due to the fact that most of my family was somewhere else on Easter I actually celebrated Easter yesterday (I'm eating from a giant jar of jelly beans as I write this Very Happy )

Who in there right mind thought it was funny to give little children candy pooping pigs!!

I painted eggs with my roommates, though inexplicably we all forgot about chocolate. Between three girls I think that's pretty unusual. I normally go to church, but I don't like the churches on campus so I've skipped out for the past four years.

Also, we got one of my cousins a moose or something that poops chocolate. It was a gag gift but I think he really got a kick out of it.

When I went to college, I was a Methodist, but I went to a Presbyterian college.

If I went to church on campus, it was Presbyterian. But most churchgoing college kids there went to church off-campus.

One of my professors was a preacher at a local Methodist church; if I went to church by myself I went there.

If I went with friends, we might wind up at a Christian or Church of Christ church (I know there are two brands, and we went to both, but I don't remember the difference), to a Nazarene church, to an Assembly of God church, to an Episcopal church, to a Catholic church, to one or more kind of Baptist church ... and I think that's it, though I might have left something out.

This was in a town smaller than my high-school, in a college smaller than my junior-high.

So, if you wanted church, why not go off-campus? Is your campus not in driving distance of some town or village?

Oh, and btw, I think it's kind of odd that you'd paint anything with your roommates. Most people would use food-coloring rather than roommates.
(How did the eggs turn out?)

Eldin, I think it's safe to say that you have gone to one too many churches Very Happy
(btw, I'm lutheran, if anyone is wondering Very Happy )

Haha. (^_^) They turned out pretty well. We used a kit that only cost a dollar so the dyes were a little cheap (mostly the blue and purple ended up being the same color), but it was fun nonetheless.
