its very popular around here to go to white sands (15 miles away) for picnic, bbq, and beach volleyball on easter. although, our wind season is now and many easters have been ruined with tons of people getting sandblasted.

you really wanna screw with the kids? hide unpainted eggs on the dunes

LOL, file it under "the hour of my life I'd conserve isn't worth the hassle". Besides, I like the people at church, so it's a chance to see them again. The ones I laugh about are when we go to Atlantic City for the weekend. We gamble all day Saturday, get up Sunday and go to church, then go back to the casinos!

Me and her, we're a real mismatch in a lot of ways, and exactly alike in so many others.

I know a few people who go to Church for their families sake, and I admire them. I think the church is a valuable place to teach very young children about morals and values, and it helps reinforce that message if the whole family goes despite how they might actually feel about it.

Kudos to you!

As for me and mine, it's just me and my dog, and I'm reasonably sure my dog is going straight to Hell, so why bother?

We send our daughter to Catholic school; best choice we ever made, IMO. I used to go to church every Sunday, but not any more. Now I only go a few times a year; Christmas, Easter, and when we're all on vacation together or when I have to trade going to church for a weekend in AC.

Hey, C&E is better than me, but I'm a strong believer in kids and church. If kids don't get the moral backbone from church, where will they get it? TV? Movies? The internet?

If that's the case, then, for me, I'll be sleeping in and enjoying a day off, just like I do every other Sunday morning...
I think you just became a "case in point"

i think this is important too and commend mosca for not denying his daughter the chance to make up her own mind based on his own personal beliefs. while i am non denominational, my 3 year old goes to catholic and baptist churches on alternating weekends. the message is the same either way to a kid. her drawing pictures of Jesus with some hideous wings that look like that of a wasp, actually make me proud.

i have always struggled of how to handle easter with my child. we will dye eggs and i will hide them because that is the tradition. this is really the 1st year where she can understand things such as Jesus dying, and a giant bunny. i am definitely leaning away from the giant bunny stories i was raised with. to me an egg is a symbol of renewed life and i think that is the angle i will take as we search for "new life" easter morning, and i tell her why we are doing, what we are doing.

i have heard those who believe that celebrating easter is just ripping off the pagan holiday worshipping the goddess ester, but i believe this type of celebration is important to my child and getting her acclimated to the real meaning of what the day represents.

Just to make sure the sarcasm that was initially missed sinks in, here's a picture of my "Devil Dog".


See, the whole thing is that my dog can't go to Hell, and I was making a statement about ...eh, nevermind...
