What do you do on Easter Day - when you are spending it with Christians!

Hey there, any of you had this experience, uncomfortable... embarrassing... my folks are coming over for Easter Lunch tomorrow, getting Lamb, my Mum is cooking a special Symnal Cake in which bits of the cake represent different pieces of the Easter Story (in marzipan)... it's the most religious day of the year and my Fundie Mum and my Vicar Dad are spending it with us... any of you doing anything similar? How do you cope?  How do you keep your cool and not be a b*stard and hurt their feelings on this special day for them?

Enjoy the meal, and practice the Zen of listening: in one ear and out the other!
I like that one.
Nice, I am perfecting that (got them down to a nice fuzzy white noise) unfortunately I then tend to zone out everything including important questions that my wife is asking, requests to pass the gravy and health and safety warnings.

I have to careful about that...lol

Now to train our brain to have a instant logic detector 

Don't forget to color some easter eggs and get some peeps & chocolate bunnys.
Thankfully, my family isn't exactly very religious.  Our Easter celebration is about family, food, and fun.
I spent easter with my not-so-religious inlaws. It was nice :)
