The kids go to a Catholic school so they are very aware of the story of Easter and why we celebrate it. It's not just about chocolate eggs and eating them until you feel sick...although that is a big part of MY Easter story. They enjoy the story of Jesus and taking part in Lent. They didn't give anything up but they did help raise money for charity through school which I think is brilliant!
Easter Sunday is just another day for us as a family. We usually go out to the park and roll our eggs down the hill if it's nice but more than anything, I just enjoy the fact they we are all off work and school and able to spend 4 days together, doing whatever we want.
The weather is pretty miserable here so for our Easter Sunday I think we'll just be cuddling on the couch, eating chocolate and watching movies. I can't think of any better way to spend such a rotten day!
