    ...it's on Sunday, so there's no day off, it's on Sunday and work is first thing Monday, there is no football on Easter Sunday, no exchange of gifts, no turkey, no costumes, no Twilight Zone Marathon, it just doesn't have the feel of a "real holiday" like Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years. I didn't even realize Easter was coming up today until Friday. I guess one can argue that Easter will always have Charles Intestine's Moses as a tradition. St. Patty's Day has corned beef and cabbage a far better staple than ham. Easter? Meh...

    In my family, once the kids got past the age of being excited about the Easter Bunny we didn't really ever make a big deal out of Easter, except my mom always made a nice roast fresh ham with sauerkraut, mashed taters, and gravy... :lunch:

    I'm going next door for Easter, I should have gone back home to see the family. If it were Easter Saturday, I might more motivated to make plans to do so.
