In the Tradition Of

I don't know about you, but for the past couple of years our family has slowly did away with the whole tradition of Easter gifts for children. I guess in a sense it was more for the reason of lack of funds. But now it just seems that the children are really too old for Easter egg hunting, gift baskets, and your usual stuffed toys - something they actually have way too many of in the first place.

Another thing we've never really done, is dress the kids up in their Sunday best. And to be quite honest, they don't own a Sunday best. To me, it seems like a waste of time to buy a fancy dress or suit that they are only going to wear probably just once and then outgrow before the next year. So with that said, I would love to know what your family does for the tradition of Easter.
