    Easter anyone?



    Do you regard Easter as a religious holiday?

    To be more specific do you go to church or regard it as anything more than time off work?

    Most people I know give little regard for the religious side to this holiday, I am curious to see how many people around Europe take their religion seriously?

    No, I don't pay regards to the religious origin of the holiday. It's just a tradition. But I am not a Christian so it would be strange. But how Christian is any of the holidays these days.

    I am Christian so I do regard it as a religious holiday. I do celebrate Easter and I eat Easter eggs and chocolate rabbits every year during Easter but we eat meat despite that traditionally as Christians we are not supposed to. I am not that pious.

    I consider it a religious holiday (like Xmas) which is why I completely disregard it, even for work. I am a point of not distinguishing religious holidays from normal days.

    Europe is supposed to be secular. Why should Christian holidays be public/national holidays ? That's against the separation of state and religion. We do not live in Christianic states, do we ? ("Christianic" being an impromptu neologism meant to convey the same connotation as in "Islamic state").
