Many countries celebrate Easter with church services chocolate eggs, Easter bunny visits and Easter egg hunts. But I thought it would be fun to see some Easter traditions from different countries. And what better country to start with than my own!
In Australia rabbits are considered a pest. While there are still plenty of chocolate rabbits given out at Easter there is a lovely tradition of giving a chocolate Bilbie instead of a rabbit. Bilbies are a cute but endangered Australian animal.
Italy: Thousands of visitors flock to St. Peters square to await the popes blessing form the church's balcony.
Bermuda: Bermudians fly homemade kites, eat codfish cakes and hot cross buns.
Haiti: Holy week is marked by playing traditional rara music and colourful parades.
How do you celebrate Easter and what special traditions are special to your part of the world?
