This year we spent Easter in a different way: we went to the Inner Harbor. Relatives by marriage were in town from Charlottesville helping their son find an apartment to rent during his summer internship with the Orioles. When we sat down for brunch, I couldn’t quite remember how long it had been since I’d been down there for a meal. Perhaps it was 18 months ago, when another Charlottesville friend came to speak at a convention about her book on sharing philosophy with children.

When Jamal Cannady of Sharptown reflects on his time at summer camp, his voice warms with the onrush of happy memories and enthusiasm. Ziplining, swimming, boating — he does it all. "Things I never did before in life I get to do at camp. I like to go out on a canoe ride, go in the pool, go camping, go on a nature walk, sing songs and we do a lot of things in the woods," he said. Cannady, 32, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Since he was 2, he has spent part of his summer at Easter Seals' Camp Fairlee, a camp established to give children and adults with a spectrum of disabilities the opportunity to experience everything offered at a typical summer camp.

You don't want your child to be the kid who comes home with no treats after an egg hunt. These events can be overwhelming for little ones, so for some hints on how to have a successful hunt, we turned to the experts. Kriste Garman , park naturalist at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center and former organizer of the Easter egg hunts at Cromwell Valley Park, said: •Look under leaves. •Eggs are often out in the open, but camouflaged, so if you see a yellow flower, look for a yellow egg. •Make sure you have a good, sturdy collection container, so you're not worried about the bottom falling out of your bag. Nikki Haschert , program specialist for the City of Westminster Recreation and Parks Department, said: •Don't just look on the ground, look everywhere.

In response to Katherine Ambrose's complaints about the timing of The Sun's coverage of the MICA exhibit on Baltimore burlesque ( "Was Easter the right time for a two-age spread on burlesque in The Sun?" April 22), I suppose the paper should also refrain from reporting about murders and rape on religious holidays as well. Or anything this dear lady might find distasteful? Oh, I forgot. Murder and mayhem is fine but a woman's breasts are unacceptable! Who will think of the children?

I was standing in line in a store recently when I heard this phrase over and over again on a closed circuit television, "Get more Easter for your dollar. " It struck me that this national chain apparently knows nothing of what Easter is. Easter is not for sale in any store. Easter is not a commodity that one buys. Easter is not something that one brings home in a shopping bag. Easter is the celebration of that glorious day when the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the grave and left His tomb empty to show His power over sin, death, Satan and the grave.

On Aug, 24, 2011, the earthquake that jolted the East Coast from Georgia to Quebec rattled through the bricks, plaster and paint of one of Baltimore's architectural jewels, the Basilica of the Assumption, sending nearly 1,000 linear feet of cracks through its ceilings and walls. On Sunday, as Christians worldwide commemorate the resurrection of Christ on Easter, the 207-year-old cathedral, too, will enjoy a rebirth. Construction workers have put the finishing touches on a seven-month, $3 million restoration job, and Sunday morning's Mass will mark the formal reopening.

On Sunday morning, as Christians in the region and around the world take part in the Easter traditions they enjoy, an observer might be tempted to ask: How do the ways they celebrate the holiday reflect its meaning? Children pet bunnies and gobble jelly beans. Wal-Mart sells more than 500 types of Easter confection, including unicorn- and space alien-themed baskets. Just a few of them allude to Christianity. How does eating a package of Peeps recall the man Christians believe redeemed the world by rising from the dead nearly 2,000 years ago?

For many Christians, Easter morning is a time when churchgoers flock to their places of worship to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. One church in Timonium, however, is sending its parishioners away — specifically, 3 miles south along York Road to Towson University's SECU Arena. "It's our first time being at SECU Arena, and we are very excited. Our ministry teams, from 7 years old and up, are very excited to serve [Easter] Sunday," said Kellie Caddick, matter conference coordinator at Church of the Nativity.

The Anne Arundel County school system will need to make up two school days missed this year to inclement weather after receiving a waiver from the state Department of Education on Wednesday. The school system had built four inclement weather days into its state-mandated 180-day school calendar, but used five additional days during an unseasonably cold and protracted winter. It was among several counties statewide that requested waivers from the state from the mandated calendar. The school system initially asked to have all five days forgiven, but last week state Superintendent of Schools Lillian Lowery denied that request.

Teresa Hicks' career in the Navy stretches back 24 years, with assignments on land and sea, and deployments around the world as both an enlisted sailor and an officer. Fresh out of the military, Hicks now is navigating a sea of a different sort: the civilian job market. And that has meant translating the military jobs she once held, such as "damage controlman," into titles such as "shipboard firefighter," that private employers can more readily understand. Today's job market is challenging, but particularly so for veterans whose experience isn't always clear to the companies that might hire them, Hicks said.

A moment as mysterious as the sacred idea it celebrates - the crucified Christ's decent into Hades before his resurrection - arrived Saturday morning at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in a cascade of rose petals and a cacophony of bells, hands drumming on wood pews and a church elder chanting in his ancestral tongue. It was a rich, even raucous moment affirming belief in Christ's conquest of evil and heralding the arrival of the church's most significant holiday. This year, the Eastern Orthodox Church - the faith of an estimated 300 million people from the United States through Eastern Europe and the Middle East - celebrates Easter a month after the Western Christian observance, capping 40 days of fasting and a week of services marking different stages of the paschal narrative.

The mourners followed the coffin of 15-year-old Grace McComas out of the church and into the morning sunlight of a beautiful Easter season. Christine McComas carried her child's stuffed toy in the crook of her arm. Grief made her look almost wistful. As Grace's parents and her three sisters left the crowded St. Michael's Catholic Church in Mount Airy a year ago, they weren't thinking that their journey of grief would take them to Annapolis. But the determination of that grief-stricken mother to tell her daughter's story - powered by a Ravens player, Maryland's first lady and a state legislator - resulted in "Grace's Law," which Gov. Martin O'Malley is scheduled to sign Thursday.
