10 International Easter Traditions from Different Cultures

We have compiled 10 international Easter customs from around the world for you to try, and these customs and recipes are ideal for you to try with your kids at home or in school as a way to teach cultural differences.


World Easter Events: 10 International Easter Traditions from Different Cultures

1. Easter in Great Britain.

 

The biggest festival in the Christian church year, Easter begins on Good Friday. There are other customs to try besides the ones that are customary in Britain, such as telling Easter Bunny stories and giving chocolate eggs and Easter cards. Warm cross buns. A popular Easter treat, hot cross buns are spiced sweet buns with currants or raisins that are topped with a cross. Hot cross buns, which are made with dairy products that are off-limits during Lent, are eaten to signify the conclusion of the fast. Consider making these hot cross buns! Hunts for Easter eggs. The best way to celebrate Easter with your children are to go on an egg hunt. For them to find, hide eggs throughout the house or garden. Consider hiding eggs with small toys or activities that will keep them occupied over the Easter break as an alternative to chocolate. Take a look at the other Easter gift alternatives we've put together for you if you prefer not to use our Discovery Eggs for an egg hunt around the garden with your kids.


Consuming lamb. Easter is traditionally a time when the lamb is consumed. The first lamb of the season, which traditionally hit the market around Easter, is the source of this custom.

 

2. England, Haux.

 

On Easter Monday, thousands of people congregate in Haux's town square to toast Easter with a massive omelet.

Everyone at the event gets to participate in making this omelet, which is made with more than 5000 eggs, 50 kg of onions and garlic, and 4 kg of salt and pepper.

For over 30 years, this custom has been practiced in France.

According to legend, Napoleon first experienced an omelet that was made for him at a hotel close to Bessières while he and his army were traversing southern France.

He loved it so much that the next day he had a huge one made for his troops, and that is how the tradition got started!

Try Lavender and Lovage's baked mini cheese and onion omelet if you don't want to make a big omelet.

 

3. Florence, Italy.

 

Over 300 years ago, the Italian custom known as "The Explosion of the Cart" began.

The cart (Brindellone), which is over nine meters tall, is towed from Via Il Prato to Piazza Duomo, where it is positioned between the Cathedral and Baptistery.

The Archbishop of Florence lights a dove-shaped rocket to represent the holy spirit at 11 o'clock while he is seated at the altar.

Fireworks are set off on top of the cart by the rocket being launched into it.

The Scoppio del Carro custom is followed by a parade of people dressed historically.

 

4. Swedish and Finnish.

 

On the Thursday before Easter, kids in Sweden and Finland go door to door exchanging artwork for candies and chocolate eggs while sporting bright headdresses, bright cheeks, and carrying bundles of willow twigs embellished with feathers. The custom is based on the myth that Swedish witches visited Blakulla before Easter to have a party with the Devil.

On Easter Sunday, the Swedish people build large bonfires to prevent the witches from returning. As a Nordic custom, this is also honored in Finland.

 

5. Brazil.

 

With a Catholic majority, Brazil is a highly religious nation. As a result, Easter celebrations are more strongly influenced by religious beliefs. Sabado de Aleluia, a small-town carnival that marks the end of Lent, is held on Easter Saturday in Brazil. Large chocolate eggs that are either hollow or filled with delectable treats are given as gifts.

Up to a month before Easter, these eggs cover the aisle ceilings in stores.

 

6. Bermuda.

 

Bermuda has a wide variety of Easter customs, such as kite flying, eating regional foods, attending religious services, and more.

As Bermudians fly kites on Good Friday, the sky is transformed into a kaleidoscope of lovely shapes, colors, and sounds.

The custom started when a local teacher from the British Army found it difficult to explain Christ's ascension to Heaven.

In an effort to illustrate the ascension, he made a kite that is typically shaped like a cross.

Eating codfish cakes and hot cross buns is another tradition in Bermuda. For the Easter holidays, Bermudans prefer hot cross buns, which are imported directly from the UK. Use this blog by Handmade Charlotte is a guide to try making your own kite.

 

7. Bulgaria.

 

In Bulgaria, one of the most significant holidays is Easter, which begins on Palm Sunday, lasts through Holy Week, and culminates on the Great Day.

The two main traditions in Bulgaria for Easter are kozunak bread and bright red eggs.

The Bulgarian " Good Luck Crack" is a distinctive custom in which participants alternately tap and even throw eggs at one another. The final unbroken egg is said to bring good luck for a year to the person who receives it. Another custom has the family's oldest woman rubbing the young ones' faces with the first red egg she has painted.

This represents her desire for them to be strong and healthy.

 

8. Poland and Hungary.

 

Easter Monday, also known as "Ducking Monday," is when the Hungarian Easter tradition of "Sprinkling" takes place.

Boys jokingly spray perfume or perfumed water on girls' heads and request a kiss.

Water was thought to have cleansing, healing, and fertility-promoting properties.

The tradition of hurling copious amounts of water at one another is known as Smigus-Dyngus and is observed on "Wet Monday" in Poland.

The custom originated when boys were permitted to splash girls with water and strike them with pussy willow branches.

This was done to express their love for one another and frequently led to marriage.

We have some fantastic Easter recipes to try if you'd rather stay dry this Easter and indulge in chocolate instead!

 

9. Eastern Europe and Central Europe.

 

In Central and Eastern Europe, Easter eggs are given a whole new meaning. Hard-boiled eggs are decorated with lovely designs and left on tables.

The eggs, a symbol of fertility and rebirth, were once believed to have been used in paganism's spring festivals to represent the vividly colored blossoming flowers.

Huge bonfires that you host with family and friends are another tradition.

An ancient Pagan ritual that is said to bring healthy fields and protection from disease to everything it touches.

Visit Growinga Jeweled Rose's blog for some simple egg decorating ideas that you can try at home.

 

10. Washington, America.

 

The president of the United States hosts the annual Easter Egg Roll on the lawn of the White House on Easter Monday.

The custom involved kids rolling colored boiled eggs with a big spoon and is thought to have started in 1878.

The day will be jam-packed with family-friendly activities for the 141st Easter Egg Roll.

This Easter, try a new tradition, swap out some of the chocolate eggs for toys, or take the kids out for a day of inventive and distinctive Easter activities.

2024 Pledging Conference for UNRWA (UN Relief & Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) - UN Chief
Play Video: 2024 Pledging Conference for UNRWA (UN Relief & Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) - UN Chief


Remarks by António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, at the UNRWA (The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) Pledging Conference 2024. "Excellencies, Ladies and gentlemen, Every year we meet to help bridge the gap between what is pledged to UNRWA and what is needed. This year is different. Yes, we face a profound funding gap. But Palestinians are seeing widening gaps across the board. Gaps in respect for international humanitarian law. Gaps in recognition of universal human rights and dignity for all. And, for Palestinians in Gaza, not just a gap – but death, destruction and a total breakdown in law and order. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse in Gaza -- somehow, appallingly, civilians are being pushed into ever deeper circles of hell. Recent days have brought yet more evacuation orders by Israeli authorities, yet more civilian suffering, and yet more bloodshed. Palestinians in Gaza keep being forced to move like human pinballs across a landscape of destruction and death. The extreme level of fighting and devastation is incomprehensible and inexcusable – and the level of chaos is affecting every Palestinian in Gaza and all those desperately trying to get aid to them. Nowhere is safe. Everywhere is a potential killing zone. It is high time for the parties to show the political courage and political will to finally reach a deal. Excellencies, Nothing justifies the horrific attacks by Hamas on October 7th. And nothing justifies the collective punishment of the Palestinian people. Yet Palestinians – including, of course, Palestine Refugees - are enduring the deadliest period since the agency’s creation. As we are all painfully aware, the horror has not spared UNRWA colleagues. 195 UNRWA staff members have been killed, the highest staff death toll in UN history. Many of them were killed together with their families and loved ones. UNRWA is also being targeted in other ways. Staff have been the subject of increasingly violent protests and virulent misinformation and disinformation campaigns. Some have been detained by Israeli security forces, and subsequently reported mistreatment and even torture. In the occupied West Bank, the presence and movements of UNRWA personnel have been severely restricted by Israeli authorities. Yet, despite these and other obstacles, in impossible conditions, and in the midst of their own grief, the women and men of UNRWA have bravely continued their work in whatever way they can. They are the backbone of humanitarian operations in Gaza. Can you imagine what it must be like to be in this situation? Can you imagine how our colleagues wake up day after day in a living nightmare and still deliver for Palestinians in desperate need? Because I cannot. They are doctors, nurses, counsellors, engineers, drivers and so many others, all demonstrating incredible courage and solidarity. And they are continuing to deliver UNRWA’s mandate in desperate circumstances in Gaza – while UNRWA also strives to deliver in an increasingly challenging situation in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria – championing human development and human rights. Excellencies, Hopelessness is the greatest ally of instability. And the work of UNRWA is one of the greatest factors providing hope and stability across a troubled region. Without the necessary support and financing to UNRWA, Palestine Refugees will lose a critical lifeline and the last ray of hope for a better future. To those of you who have already pledged support, I thank you. My appeal to everyone is this: Protect UNRWA, protect UNRWA staff, and protect UNRWA’s mandate -- including through funding. Let me be clear: there is no alternative to UNRWA. We are working on all fronts to implement the recommendations of the Catherine Colonna Report, by strengthening UNRWA’s work and risk management mechanisms. Now is also the time to work on all fronts to support UNRWA’s critical mission. And now is the time to bring an end to this terrible war, starting with an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and an immediate and unconditional release of all hostages. Ultimately, only a political solution can bring an end to this conflict – one that realizes a vision of two States – Israel and Palestine – living side by side in peace and security, with Jerusalem as the capital of both states. I urge you to act – and act now. Act to instill hope in a place where it is in short supply. Act to uphold the mandate of this General Assembly to sustain UNRWA. Act in solidarity with Palestine Refugees and all the Palestinian people. Thank you".

The UN Charter says that Member States must guarantee the rights of all people, regardless of history, culture or social norms. However, around the world, people continue to face discrimination, criminalization and violence purely because of their sexual orientation and identity. Earlier this year, Secretary-General António Guterres promised that the UN “firmly stands with the LGBTIQ+ community and will continue working until human rights and dignity are a reality for all people”. But what does that mean in practical terms, and how is the UN helping this community? With Beatriz Barral from UN News, Michael Van Gelderen from the UN High Commission for Human Rights and Chris Mallouris from UNAIDS.

Press Briefing by Mr. Navid Hanif, Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development, UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), along with Mr. John Wilmoth, Director, Population Division, UN DESA and Ms. Clare Menozzi, Senior Population Affairs Officer, Population Division, UN DESA. They brief journalists on the World Population Prospects 2024: Summary of Results. The global population reached nearly 8.2 billion by mid-2024 and is expected to grow by another two billion over the next 60 years, peaking at around 10.3 billion in the mid-2080s. It will then fall to around 10.2 billion, which is 700 million lower than expected a decade ago. That’s just one of the key findings revealed in Thursday’s World Population Prospects 2024 report published by the UN Thursday. However, changes in global population are uneven and the demographic landscape is evolving, with rapid population growth in some places and rapid ageing in others, making reliable population data “more important than ever”, said the UN sexual and reproductive health agency (UNFPA), heralding the report which is published to coincide with World Population Day. The report “must be used to reach and respond to the needs of those who have been left behind,” the agency added. ‘Everyone counts’ Marking the international day, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said it was key to accurately count everyone “because everyone counts.” “Our rich human tapestry is only as strong as its weakest thread. When data and other systems work for those on the margins, they work for everyone. This is how we accelerate progress for all.” To study this population data more closely, the 28th edition of World Population Prospects (WPP) published by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) since 1951, provides the latest demographic data for 237 countries from 1950 to 2024 and projections up to the year 2100. The WPP is crucial to monitor the Sustainable Development Goals, with about a quarter of the indicators relying on its data. Learn More: https://news.un.org/en/story/2024/07/1151971

Kenya's under-fire President William Ruto has dismissed with "immediate effect" all his ministers and the attorney-general, following the recent deadly protests that led to the withdrawal of an unpopular tax bill. The president said the move came after "reflection, listening to Kenyans, and after holistic appraisal of my cabinet". He has said he will now consult widely in order to set up a broad-based government. The dissolution of his cabinet does not affect the deputy president, who can’t legally be fired, and the prime cabinet secretary who is also the foreign affairs minister.

President Zelensky has urged NATO leaders to drop all restrictions on striking targets inside Russia if, in his words, means Ukraine wins the war.

At the Nato’s summit in Washington, members promised billions of pounds more in military aid and training for the country.

Here political stability has returned but France faces the opposite. Polls close in less than an hour. Turnout has been high. The result is either the first populist right wing government since World War Two or the chaos of a hung parliament. Marine Le Pen's far-right National Rally came out top in the first round a week ago. But it may well fall short of a majority - after President Macron's centrist Together alliance and the left-wing New Popular Front coalition withdrew more than 200 candidates from three-way races to unite against the far right.
