Easter celebrations around the world.
There’s more to Easter than coloured eggs, chicks, and bunnies.
Some Easter motifs and traditions are region-specific. In Bermuda, for example, people celebrate Good Friday by flying kites. New York hosts the famous Easter Parade along Fifth Avenue, and Lancashire in the UK has its Nutter’s Dance. People in Scandinavia light bonfires to ward off witches over the Easter weekend, and Ghana celebrates with its annual Paragliding Festival.
In France, bells, not bunnies, bring Easter chocolate to children, whereas in Australia, the Easter Bilby (an endangered desert marsupial) brings treats.
Wishing you a meaningful, memorable, and wonderful Easter!
FACT: Easter egg hunts prove that your child can find things when they want to!
