Is Lent getting you down? Fear not, Easter is coming up soon and it won't be long before you can chow on chocolate eggs and brunch!

Easter Sunday, which happens April 20, means many things to many people.

For Christians, it's a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But it's also a chance to bring family together and watch your kids play in the yard as they hunt for eggs left behind by the Easter Bunny.

We took a poke around the Internet and saw what some famous people thought about Easter. We've compiled their thoughts below.
