Western Easter is almost upon us! This year we’ve collected listings for Easter brunch and dinner, as well as a good number of egg hunts. Most years, Western Easter (celebrated by the Catholics, Episcopalians, Protestants, etc) and Orthodox Easter (celebrated by the Greek Orthodox) fall on different days but this year they are on the same day.
