Are you an Easter fan or do you just enjoy the fact that it brings along holidays? Anyway, Easter is a feast that is celebrated almost everywhere in the world. For some countries, it means a lot and sometimes it’s even the most important time of the year.
Above all, Easter is a religious feast that you can find in several religions such as Catholicism and Judaism. For those of you who don’t know what it relates to or have never heard about Easter, just simply because you don’t celebrate it in your country: Easter is the celebration of Jesus being resurrected.
On another end, Easter is also a good occasion for family reunion, eat lots of food and give and receive presents. There are plenty of different traditions from one country to another. Some are more religion-oriented and some others are just simply crazy and funny.
