    Celebrating Easter Around the World!

    Easter in Australia is a time of colourful eggs, chocolate bunnies, and hot cross buns, but how are the rest of the world celebrating? Just for fun, we are looking at some of the funnier traditions from around the globe. Maybe you will see something your family would like to embrace this Easter season.

    Germany - The Osterbaum

    In Germany, it's not uncommon to see trees decorated with colourful eggs hanging from their branches, known as the Osterbaum. It is pretty much a Christmas tree but with an Easter twist. Get into the spirit by making your own easter egg garlands for the tree around your home!

    Bermuda - Kite Flying

    In Bermuda, Easter is synonymous with kite flying. In a reference to Christ rising to heaven, the skies are filled with colourful kites. It is a beautiful display and one that would be great fun to embrace with your children by making your own DYI kite over the easter break!

    France - The Flying Bells

    In France, church bells are said to fly to Rome and return with Easter eggs for children. On Easter Sunday, the church bells remain silent to signify their journey. I am not sure how the bells carry all that chocolate without arms, but if it gets the job done, that’s good enough for us.

    Sweden - The Easter Witch

    In Sweden, in a slightly terrifying take on the season, children dress up as påskkärringar, or Easter witches, and go door to door, exchanging drawings for candy. It is Halloween with a more magical twist. Maybe skip this one, you don’t want to scare the Easter Bunny away!

    United States - The White House Egg Roll

    In the United States, the annual White House Easter Egg Roll has been a tradition since 1878. Children roll coloured eggs down the White House lawn using wooden spoons, in a race to the bottom. However it ends, I am sure there are plenty of Easter eggs for everyone after the race.  

    These Easter traditions remind us that no matter where we are in the world, the holiday is a time of joy, renewal, and a healthy dose of fun. So, whether you're flying kites, rolling eggs or just enjoying a cuppa and a hot-cross bun, may your Easter be filled with joy and laughter!
