Easter Around The World

March 29 2013, 18:57

 

One of the holiest festivals in the Christian calendar, Easter, is celebrated around the world, with great fanfare and religious fervor.

While the religious observations of the festival follow the Christian church, the basic contours of Easter celebration may vary in different countries, due to regional influences. These variations straddle almost all the aspects of Easter celebration. In the majority of countries, Easter bunny is the prominent Easter symbol, while in France, Easter fish and bells are the major Easter icons. Pre-Lent carnivals are held across the world, with Rio de Janeiro carnival being the most famous one. In many Eastern European countries, Easter egg decoration is an integral part of Easter celebrations.

Happy Easter!
