Easter dinner in or out?
« on: April 02, 2012, 03:53:45 am »
When I was growing up every holiday dinner was at someone's house which I loved.
My dad died last year and the 1st holiday after that was Easter. We decided to go to his favorite restaurant for Easter and a had a fantastic meal.
We are doing it again this year with even more family.
so are you having dinner in or out?
Be grateful for what you have and you will receive more than you ever expected

If you believe it you can achieve it.

This year we dont live near any family so we will probably be eating in at our house. We havent really decided, but since we are buying a house we need to save money. Sadly I dont even think the kids will be hunting Easter eggs, because it is way to cold outside. We even have snow right now, and I hate the cold.  :angry7: We might have to try doing an in the house one.  :'( :-

When my mother-in-law was alive and while she still had good health, we always went to her house for Easter.  Our girls would hunt Easter eggs in their yard after we had eaten.  We would spend the afternoon there visiting.  It hasn't really been the same since she passed away but now we have Easter at our house every year.  I fix a big meal and we eat on our china to make it even more special.  This year, due to the amount of work it all takes (cleaning more than usual for company) I thought for about 10 seconds to suggest we go out or just crock a roast.  But, after those 10 seconds I went back to thinking the traditional would mean more to everyone, including myself.

I love to put on a spread....but usually do it just for my immediate family.  Someday soon, I'd like to invite someone who I know doesn't have anywhere to go for the day!

We are always in church on Easter Sunday because my husband is a pastor so we usually eat a meal out.

We always  go  to my brother and sister-in-laws house. They have a big family and we don't. But i always do someof the cooking when we go . When my sons were young everyone came to my house. but since both have passed away it is hard for me to have the family here.

Easter is at my mom's. I never felt right about expecting others to work on holidays like Easter. They should be able to enjoy it with their families as well.

We normally go over to a friends and celebrate with them cause most of my family is elsewhere in the country and thus they are the closest things we have to family.

we are having dinner at a relatives house. They enjoy doing it and this year we don't have to choose where to go because the others are far away so their isn't any stress. I don't like to go out because of the wait and the cost. I would probably enjoy it if I was invited out but didn't have to pay. Restaurants seem to raise their prices for holiday dining otherwise it would be a attractive alternative to eating in. enjoy the day ,the food and company.
