Yes, in Philippines. This is very important because almost people here are Catholic. This is our time to remember our sins and ask forgiveness.
I celebrate the resurrection and I look at the day as a very special day. Before I became a Christian in 2006, it was just another holiday built around the Easter Bunny and chocolate. Now I understand the significance of the day and I look forward to the Easter service every year.
I celebrate the Resurrection. The day Christ got up with all power in His hand, never to die again. He paid the price for you and I.
I celebrate the crucifixion and the resurrection. You can't have one without the other. Easter is but another name for it.
The celebration of Easter is about the sacrifice on the cross of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, it is not separate. If you mean the trappings of Easter, such as The bunny and egg hunts, then this is another question altogether, and is another example of how holidays are manipulated for financial gain by unscrupulous business folks, who take advantage of other peoples religious ceremonies. They deliberately change their true meanings, and over time, it becomes so accepted by the majority, that there are not many complaints about this falsehood.
By celebrating the death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the cross, his death, and resurrection, we are showing our care and regards to the basis of our chosen religion of Christianity. In our accepting of Christ as our Savior and following Him, we may be saved from the sinful nature of mankind and accepted into heaven to abide with Christ and God, our Creator. Jesus' resurrection is celebrated with great joy and proof that the Lord Jesus died and was reborn, to eat at the last supper with his disciples, further strengthens our devotion to our faith.
But surely all the "trappings" of Easter- the bunnies the eggs, the hunts were around for a very long time before Jesus was born- so not really taking advantage of easter time .

Yes, I reflect on the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth as I celebrate Resurrection Day. Each year, I strive to put forth more effort to spending special times during the whole week preceding Resurrection to reflect on what Jesus did for us and offer Him more thanksgiving for His gift.
I celebrate the Resurrection of Christ Jesus. Such a glorious day, when Jesus rose from the dead & brought victory over death & sin. He bought us for a price & the devil has no hold over us any more. By His death & resurrection He gave us the free gift of eternal life. He conquered death & gave us salvation.
I grew up with the Easter Bunny, egg hunts, and chocolate, but I celebrate Resurrection day now.
I celebrate the death and resurrection of my savior, Jesus Christ. He paid the debt that I could not pay. I am eternally grateful.
Yes! If Jesus didn't rise from the grave, Christianity would be a dead religion.

On the one hand, they were murderers so they should go to Hell, but on the other hand their actions were necessary in order for Christianity to come into existence so they should go to Heaven. If you are Christian and believe that Christianity is the one true religion, then what do you think...

How can you explain resurrection to young children? As a child I found the idea scary. As a parent I am not sure how to explain it to my children. Any ideas?

Is it moral to profit from the murder of an innocent man? If you accept that the person is murdered to give you everlasting life aren’t you just as guilty of the crime? If a man said to his son, let them murder you and I forgive all of them their debts to me. What would you think of that man?...
