    We go to church every year and then visit family. No big meals, but we get together to eat lunch/dinner. Last year was our son's 1st Easter so we had to go get his Easter goodies from all the grandparents after church.

    I like Easter.. Just not as much as Christmas, as, in that Holiday I dont get that happy as I get with Christmas.

    Easter in Greece is the most important annual religious feast and people take it very seriously, there is a deep religious devotion..
    We gather in church every evening and morning throughout Great Week and its a very very sad week..
    Honestly, I do not feel well those days.

    The only day we are happy is Sunday, the most people's favorite day.
    Jesus is resurrected from the dead and a big eating / drinking / dancing thing is starting and lasts for 2 days, in every village square of the country..

    Yes Easter is not as happy as Christmas! Especially Holy Week! I go to the "Stations of the Cross" at church and find that very sad.
    It is much more of a religious holiday. There are fun things for the kids - like egg hunts and visits with the Easter Bunny. We also color eggs, dress up for church, get baskets of candy from the Bunny himself, and have a big dinner - usually ham!

    Yea, we color eggs, too, in Holy Thursday.. Then, go to church all evening and night.
    That day was The Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles.

    The last 30 years TV always shows the mini series of Jesus The Nazareth, by Franco Jefirelli with great Robert Powel as Jesus..
    I would say that this film is for many people the most accurate portayal of Jesus..
