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

Candy for breakfast day.

Eating chocolate whilst being hungover and laughing to myself as I get a tongue lashing about not going to mass off my family because "I just want to be different" before telling my family I don't believe in cosmic jewish zombies

I love Easter. When I have kids we're going to call it bunny day, and they are gonna have a lot of fun, and no stories about undead homophobes. Also I think I'll call Christmas Santa day.

Easter? What's that?

A four day weekend surrounding the first Sunday after the full moon following the northern hemisphere's vernal equinox. (Thanks Wikipedia!)

I ,for one, welcome our new chocolate bunny overlords.

A Pagan holiday totally removed from Christianity having its roots in the Babylonian Mysteries and Mithraism.

Week long vacation, lots of fun in pools and beaches and relax in the middle of the year!

I love the idea of chocolate rabbits and bilbies and eggs usurping the story of a bloke nailed, tortured, on a cross. Eating chocolate is much more fun.

We atheists often subvert the religious holidays to something non-religious. For example, I think the idea of a time of year to reconnect with family through gift-giving is, overall, a good idea. So, yes, I celebrate Xmas (as opposed to Christmas). I don't pay a lot of attention to Easter, though, except that I have grandkids, so colorful cookies, chocolate bunnies, etc., but no catechism.
