Happy Easter

 

Easter is almost here! How will you celebrate it this year? People from different countries might give different answers to this question. Whether they celebrate Easter as a Christian holiday or not, people from all over the world keep many interesting traditions and unique ways of marking this special occasion. Here are 10 of them:

 

1. The Easter bunny

Probably the most popular Easter tradition is that of the Easter bunny bringing gifts to children. Originally, the Easter bunny or “Easter Hare” was some sort of a judge that evaluated whether children were good or disobedient and decided if they deserved to receive sweets and colored eggs. The Easter bunny was first introduced by German Lutherans and it is believed that German immigrants brought this tradition with them to the United States in the 18th century, from where it started to spread all over the world. According to this tradition, children make nests in which they receive colored eggs from the egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws”.
