My definition of Easter would be a superstitious ritual that has no place in modern times. Whats your definition?
Time with family.. and ham and chocolate.
As with all holidays they were stolen by the church, so I believe they can be recovered. Give us back our pagan Easter. I think they used to wear their best clothes so they could pick each other up (loosely paraphrased). A celebration of Spring! Which I do by planting a bunch bushes/trees and stuffing myself on Whopper Eggs!
A day where I worship the fertility godess by, well you get the idea.
I used to love it when my rabbi asked christians: how did you turn the passover lamb into the easter ham?
That's funny right there...
I also get sent a chocolate bunny from my mom in Germany. That is about the extent of the holiday for me.
Rotten eggs that i forgot where i hid them found sometime in july by accident, hollow chocolate that tastes even worse then hersheys, and that annoying green grass everywhere.
The highlight though is marshmallow peep torture a classic web craze long before meme was a thing.

I agree with Gininitaly, a nice festival celebrating Spring, just as Christmas is a lovely winter Solstice celebration, not to mention Jimmy Buffett's ACTUAL birthday! :-)
OHBOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOY IT'S EASTER!!!!!!!! THAT ONE DAY OUT OF THE YEAR WHERE IT'S OK FOR ME TO DRAMATICALLY BITE THE HEADS OFF OF THINGS AND EAT MYSELF INTO A STATE THAT WOULD MAKE ETHIOPIAN CHILDREN HATE ME FOR DECADES TO COME!!!!!!!!!
