on the eve of Catholic Easter's thinking and I was curious as to your families?
Nicolo, like me, an Orthodox but all other relatives in Italy - Catholics ... Like it or not, he notes all on a large scale in the Catholic calendar (on the Christmas gifts presented to him, and Easter egg chocolate Nadar) ... and somehow I do not what to sad, and a little weird again to give him gifts and Orthodox holidays already like overkill (and so load with presents) ... in your families (mixed)?

kids usually give a lot of gifts, can lay up a thread on Orthodox holidays, IMHO))) Published Yesterday, 19:14

We believe with the husband that the child will grow up and will decide what / whom to believe. Our family is not given much importance to any religious holidays.

my question is a little out of it, we have already taken a different decision I wonder how in such families, as we do ... for me it was important to baptize the child and the husband does not practice much and did not mind that the child was Orthodox

Natasha, I think I understand your question, try to answer. I, though, and from a Muslim family, but not a religious Muslim holidays do not. The husband, who was born in a Catholic family, considered himself a Jew, but also the Jewish holidays are not celebrated. When he died in front of me there was a question, whether to hold a ritual and conduct. The two elder of his daughter -iskrennie Catholic. So I decided to conduct the funeral service at the Catholic church to have daughters was peace in my soul. I think that my husband would agree with this decision, he was very fond of their children. And when they were Catholic holidays, the husband gladly ate panetone and other ritual meals. I do not know if I helped you examples of our family.

We have the same situation. Plus, even with church problems, we must go somewhere.
I for Easter and Orthodox Christmas (well really all the other Orthodox holidays do not mention ) Do something "small." We congratulate the kid each other and get compliments from her husband. I can cook something in the positive.
The most important thing - it is a sense of celebration inside.
That's how they say "Easter mood" - a holiday when the soul.
This extra days to talk with your child about the spiritual component of the holidays.
Generally we are every year more and more away from the celebrations and purchase gifts for the holidays. A certain such obyazalovke give something on certain days. And I am unspeakably happy.
As for families with small children, it may be also in a special way to celebrate two holidays. While the child is small, even just to give some trifle, but if home mom celebrates, say something - today races religious holiday. Children understand everything and then will distinguish holidays.
I liked very much the approach @alena for the holidays. For example, a girl comes of St. Nicholas (at the start of December seems to be in general), and then shish

Haha, we had a case here in the family. Cousin married to a woman from Morocco. We arrive at Christmas, bear baby gift. They brought a gift, because this is our holiday and nice to do something a little because it generally was the only kid among relatives. As a result, we were told: "We do not celebrate, but a child then it will confuse the holidays, do not want it to be Christmas gifts then consider the day Muslims only celebrate a birthday and Ramadan.".
- Ok - we were told. I was upset at first, but then I thought: Well, okay, less gifts, but, I dragged the first year still small.
and after a year and a half ..... when the woman saw that the Catholic-Orthodox families do not carry over gifts to children (and when there is Ramadan, we do not know) .... this past Christmas I was told I did not say that we We do not want to celebrate and do not want gifts.
Yeah-Yeah, I have a good memory
Seeing that all together have decided to honor her religious feelings and did not bring gifts, she decided that she and her children do not harm the Christian holidays.

Yes, I also do not particularly like "commercial" component of religious holidays, we still somehow on special religious holidays not taken anything to give and I like it ... I would not want to Nicky for Christmas (any - Orthodox or Catholic) gave a billion gifts that he had opened a quantitative interest, and would value things and gifts, which receives ... But for this I need to alter the whole environment, and it is not possible ((I'm in NY childhood gave 1 only gift, but one that I wanted to, fasted all the gifts I still remember I do not think that the Italian nephews will remember what they gave for Christmas .... only think of a pile of presents

Yes, seriously. It is easy to become a Russian strontium, depriving kiddie holiday: D Posted Yesterday, 21:55
You can arrange a specific ritual: to go to church or have a picnic with Russian friends, do not go to school in January 7th. It'll be even better than material gifts :) Posted Yesterday, 21:59

it seems to me, when the children are small, you can give to ser ...

but what about the huge chocolate eggs for 1 kg and above? we had a year ... all sprinkled with baby ... then my husband and I secretly ate chocolate
and this year did not even bought chocolate eggs. Only the cakes, but for me it's not an option to cook cakes On Sunday, I think something else to cook. The child told me that before the age of 18 she would like to learn how to prepare tiramisu and zuppa inglese, that's probably going to teach her a minute

comment

Well, at the same time teach us ... or rather I, others probably already know how)))) Posted on Yesterday 22:21
