The long weekend is almost upon us, and as a 30-year-old adult it raises a thorny question: planning for Easter.
Easter was a lot easier when it was Mum and Dad doing all of organising. But now it’s more of a joint affair, it’s given rise to a curious question: since everyone won’t be spending the whole four day weekend together, what part of the public holiday becomes “Easter”?
My family was always large on doing two days: Good Friday, a day for enjoying cod, and Easter Sunday. Right now things seem fairly locked into just the one day, Good Friday, since Tegan and I have only recently moved house and we’re also in the process of planning ahead for a holiday (in a couple of weeks, actually).
I’m actually looking forward to having a really quiet Easter this year, because the last thing I need is mountains and mountains of chocolate. I will probably miss the fun of fossicking around the house for eggs though, although the sad reality of being an adult means that I’ll probably end up enjoying the peace and quiet – so I can work. Such is life, alas.
What’s the biggest day of the Easter holidays for you, and will you be doing anything special with your family?
