I didn't know presents were a common occurance on Easter ... besides chocolate (of course).

I often enjoy going to Easter church services with good choirs and music.

If I got presents in Easter, certainly that would be important. But chocolate is good, too.

I used to like finding the Easter eggs most of all, and the candy at the end of the search was a nice bonus.

Unless you count the Easter basket I've never heard of getting presents on Easter.

Happy Easter!

I get presents on Easter, but not nearly as many as...say, birthdays or Christmas. This year I only got one. Not that I wanted anything else, though. There's plenty of chocolate ;) Unfortunately, I have work to do this Easter. :(

And Happy Easter to everyone! (At least everyone who celebrates it, that is...)

Unfortunately, I have to vote number four. It's really what we're celebrating that counts...

Babelfish came up with: "Merry germanic Productivity Festival!". Assuming you were not writing in a language that superficially looks like german, shouldn't the word have been "fröhliches"? Don't like umlauts, ™?

Based on what I'm assuming is a clarification, you're referring to a germanic fertility festival?

I was going to say something else, but I can't think of anyway to word it without it sounding either insipid or sycophantic.

I find it interesting that the religious aspect of Easter wasn't mentioned. I also find it interesting that this poll assumed that everyone either is Christian or celebrates Easter.

That said, number 4 for the win.

I don't speak German, but I suspect whatever TM said had to do with some sort of religion.

I'm an atheist and a college student. Thus I have neither the time nor the inclination to celebrate Easter.

I feel horrible. I should've at least gone to church. I almost did, but then I thought if I went today (my friend offered to take me) then she would start inviting me every Sunday and that's just something that will NOT happen. Besides, I already sacrificed my soul to the never ending fire.

On the other hand, I never heard of chocolates and the Easter Bunny until I came to the United States, and I'm still confused as to why it exits. However, I would never refuse eating chocolate. Good thing that my mom’s bf celebrates just about anything, so I got two chocolate packages today Woo Hoo

Edit: I, too, party with Wikipedia.

You don't need a reason for chocolate, or for bunnies either. The mere fact that they are there is quite enough.

I've not gone to church on Easter for years, though. I could have hiked up to the Unitarian church here, as they seem non-scary, but I would feel weird just wandering into a church where I don't know anybody.

No offense taken. Though with a community of this size (and global distribution), I feel that it's never quite safe to make assumptions about people's beliefs.

Granted, I'm from the midwest in the US, so I'd understand if somebody assumed that about me.

I'm a pretty bad Christian, but hey, any excuse for eggs and chocolate.
