Easter Traditions Around The World
Starting new traditions with your family is a great way to bring family, friend, and the community together. While we’re familiar with the many Easter traditions in America, we wondered what other countries do to celebrate Easter. Here is what we’ve learned:
Hungarian residents take part in a unique Easter tradition known as “sprinkling.” Sprinkling takes place on Easter Monday and boys and young men playfully sprinkle perfume, cologne or water over a female’s head and ask for a kiss. Legend has it that water has a cleansing and fertility inducing effect.
Haux, France makes a giant omelet made from 4,500 eggs that feed approximately 1,000 town’s people. This Easter tradition began when Napoleon was traveling through the south of France with his army where they stopped for omelets. Napoleon was extremely fond of his omelet and ordered the townspeople to gather all of their eggs to make him and his army a giant omelet the following morning.
Easter in Sweden is similar to Halloween here in the United States. Swedish children will dress up as Easter witches wearing long skirts, colorful hand scarfs, and painted red cheeks. The children will go door-to-door with their drawings and paintings hoping to exchange them for delicious Easter treats.
On Good Friday, locals celebrate by eating codfish cakes, hot cross buns, and flying handmade kites. This country-wide tradition is said to have begun when a teacher from the British army had difficulty explaining the ascension of Christ to his Sunday school class. He made a kite in the shape of cross to symbolize the ascension to Heaven.
Similar to our tradition of dyeing Easter eggs and hiding them for children to find, German’s also color Easter eggs. However, instead of hiding the eggs, they proudly hang them in trees to display the bright colors and celebrate Spring and Easter.
Most likely the largest Easter celebrations in the world takes place in Seville, Spain. About 52 different religious brotherhoods parade through the streets of Seville reenacting the crucifixion of Christ. Thousands of townspeople watch the processions of marching bands, decorated candle lit floats that illustrates the Easter story.
As you can see, there is a variety of Easter traditions that take place all over the world, and this is just a small preview. Some traditions follow the religious story, while others are intended to celebrate the return of Spring and time spent with family, friends, and the community. Sugar And The Candy Tree is another exciting tradition you can begin with your family!
