Do you believe in Christ or the Easter Bunny?

Is Easter a secular holiday now?

It seems many of my friends who are otherwise fairly non-religious are doing easter baskets and easter egg hunts and making really big easter dinners. I find that sort of... odd. Why have an elaborate feast for a holiday that you do not celebrate nor attend church on day-of? Granted, a lot of these people have kids so is it just a holiday for consumers? Another special opportunity to buy gifts and candy for your kids?
I mean, nothing's cuter than an easter egg hunt but what are they telling them about WHY they are hunting easter eggs. Frankly, I found the whole egg/bunny thing a little strange when I was growing up in a religious (Christian) household but, hey, free candy, right?
Do you celebrate Easter even though you are not religious? Do you have kids? What's the story?
