Knowing the thought of eating hard boiled eggs, candy, ham, lamb and all the fixings may not agree with you - But what about dyeing eggs, stuffing eggs and just hanging out, trying to relax!

There is something about the smell of vinegar that brings back memories of those little colored tablets and dyeing eggs.

Share your Easter plans and traditions,

I don't celebrate holidays anymore and wouldn't have remembered it's Easter Sunday had it not been for some friends.

I'm starting a new tradition: I'll be throwing out the stuff that's snuffing the life out of this place--I already threw out 2 suitcases and clothes.

My yarn collection is next--I have too much to use anytime soon.

Eggs? I might use one if I bake some cookies from scratch.

My family gets together the night before with the little ones usually to dye Easter eggs. I missed it last year because I wasn't feeling well, but I'm hoping to make it this year. Then on Sunday, we have a big family get together and the kids hunt eggs. I'll eat a little of this and a little of that, and probably regret it on my way home. I'm planning to keep my Immodium, Gas-X, Bentyl, and pain meds near by.

My mom still makes me an Easter basket every year, and this year I plan to make her one, too. She doesn't know it yet though. The boyfriend is also getting one, but he always does, lol.

Sunrise church service, out for breakfast, then at daughter's for dinner with all of the family. There should be about 22 of us there, give or take I guess.

My younger grandkids will hunt for their eggs (plastic ones) and I always put money in them. They're getting to the age now tho that quarters and dollars are not quite enough. I will probably get each of them a gift card from Toys R Us and then they can get what they want. I spoil them...can you tell?

But we will have ham and all the trimmings, plus lasagna and other Italian goodies. My husband is Italian so we always do include Italian food at all holiday meals.
