    Yes, I do the same as you @BenCotto, I bought a box of assorted eggs, bunnies, daffs etc to hang from hazel twigs when the grandchildren were tiny - gosh, they're now nearly 14 and 11!

    Must get them out this afternoon, thanks for reminding me.

    No, but a very religious friend sends us an Easter card every year rather than a Christmas card.

    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    No, but we're not religious and we don't have children or expect any to visit. We might have some choccy eggs but not until next week if the shops reduce them!

    I often put up a "spring wreath" on my front door, but not this year.  I'm enjoy marking Eostra so any spring time festivities will do for me.

    That’s very cute @BenCotto. You’ve inspired me, I’m going to do one and then if I get to the shops on time I’ll fill them with chocs for an impromptu egg hunt. 

    I was going to say no because it’s time to spring clean but a little Easter egg tree or wreath would be nice.

    Used t when Possum was small but I gave my box of Easter egg decs to the kindergarten class at the village primary school just before we moved.

    Only Easter decorations in our house are my Easter egg and a big bowl of mini eggs on the sideboard! Unlike the Christmas decorations, I don’t have to find anywhere to store them afterwards!

    Wouldn't last long enough to be much of a decoration here :D
