As the title says, what are you doing for Easter?

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!

Work - all day. I got to see the kids open their baskets and begin the roller coaster of sugar rush/crash and then it was off to work. Oh well - got to pay for those baskets somehow!!

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!

Every Ostara I have a big meal with family and friends that, of course, has one egg dish.

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

Candy is candy, any excuse works.

Took my daughter to the zoo.

I'm an atheist, and my wife and daughter are Jewish, so Easter isn't really our thing. I do appreciate the jellybeans, though.

Laid on the couch and watched the unbelievably awesome Sunday round of the Masters.

And ate spaghetti and drank root beer floats.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Mangini might not have had balls, but he DID have soft, supple breasts." (SEADAWG)


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.

Unfortunately, NASCAR wasn't on this weekend...so I spent Sunday playing video games, and cleaning up the apartment.

I like to grill red snapper, catfish, shrimp, and steak when I get a chance to do some sweet BBQ work. I haven't had much an opportunity in recent months, but I can't wait to get started again!
