My definition of Easter would be a superstitious ritual that has no place in modern times. Whats your definition?

It's that time of year when coworkers say "have a nice Easter" before the weekend and then afterwards ask "how was your Easter?"

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! :-)

Like most Americans, I'm pretty sure it involves the Easter bunny rising from the dead and bringing us candy. And it lays eggs. Which... we honor by painting eggs. Or something.
