For me, I always attend the Easter Vigil Mass, and being married didn't change that. It's the litergical high point for the Catholic faith, and it's pretty awesome. It was also my first Easter Vigil married!
Another cool thing this year was I ran the Rite of Christian Initiation for Teens (RCIT) this year with my wife. We had one of the youth (he's seventeen) of our parish youth group (which I've been helping out with for the last four years or so) get Baptized and Confirmed last night, which was truly wonderful.
Afterwards a few of of us in the Catholic yount adult community went out and invaded the local Perkins. Good times!
Tonight (Sunday) my wife and I start our own cutom....a nice dinner
Do you guys/gals have anything planned?
PS: Also wanted to use this thread to wish others a very Happy Easter to those who celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ! And regardless, may God bless you all in the upcoming year.
You know, I really don't know what to put here. Close your eyes and thank of something funny!
My wife and I are completely nonreligious, as are most of our friends, and didn't realize today was Easter. Today's my birthday, so we walked down to a place we like to get brunch at on Sundays and it was completely mobbed. We had also planned to visit a few furniture stores, and they all ended up being closed. I never thought Easter was such a big deal!
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.

I'm atheist but growing up we always did the egg hunts and candy. Did the same for my son this morning.

Since I missed the family Zombie Jeebus Day festivities one day earlier, I spent Easter proper with my girlfriend and her mother at Mohegan Sun. (That's their big family-oriented holiday tradition.) Despite not planning on gambling, I won $5 from scratch-off tickets her mother gave me, bet that in the slots (ew) and ended up another $1.90. Oh, and on the way back, found another $3 randomly in the street.
Thread ahead: What's your home improvement project? Next thread: Easter baskets.....hidden or not hidden Previous thread: Since we have the pretty picture of Top Ramen noodles up there, what's your favorite flavor?
Bought a brand new Nissan Versa because it gets better gas milage than what it replaced. It's saving us about $100 a month so far, and should put a nice dent in what we usually spend on cross-state driving (relatives out of state, so it can't be avoided)...
