    Happy Easter All! It symbolizes rebirth, and embodies Spring. Here's hope for a happy year ahead now that Winter's over.
    Easter is a bigger holiday to Poles and Slavs than Christmas, spiritually. It's all about rebirth, hence the beginning of spring. It's why we invented the Easter egg. Since it's too cold in Poland to celebrate Mardi Gras, we wait till the Monday and Tuesday after Easter. It's known as Dyngus and Smygus. Huge party in the 'hood! Kielbasa, eggs, and lots of piwa (beer). Unfortunately, as it's primary season every other year, it's taken on a political bent.

    Happy Easter GT! While I am physically exhausted, my heart is full. Up at 4am today. Got ready, got the fam up, the Easter Bunny had come for my daughter, played three services to nice big congregations(yay!), hit some Hibachi for a late lunch, back to the In-Laws for desserts, games, and more Easter gifts for my girl, then jumped on the bike to try to roll bike the calories for the day(lol), an hour and a half conference call, and now I am laying in bed looking at GT considering actually going to sleep at 9pm. Hahahahaha
    Great day!

    Happy Easter to all of you, and your families.

    As always, Easter is about family for us but this year, it was not happy. My wife's mother passed at midnight last night. She was fighting a prolonged condition and about a week ago her internal organs began to shut down.

    She was a wonderful, funny and zany lady, outgoing and kind. I was honoured to know and love her.

    I could not have asked for better in-laws and I will do my best to ensure that Dad isn't lonely or in need of anything

    Happy Easter all. I don't really celebrate. This is the first year I didn't to a scavenger hunt with riddles for my kids, just been too busy with work and exhausted. But it was only the second time to see all my full siblings in the last year in our backyard. And for the first time, my kids set up the Easter egg hunt, for their 2 younger cousins.

    Only one service for me, congregation was small but at least we were together unlike last year. A step forward and all went well. Sounds like you had a very busy day. The kids kept us busy and now the Easter Bunny is tired...:D.
