Happy Easter
I live in Canada.
Right now it's snowing outside if you can believe it.
Easter is usually more of something for little kids here, even though most people still give each other presents and stuff(flowers, teddy bears, jellybeans, chocolate, etc.)
Most people eat ham for dinner(we're having old fashioned ham tonight).
Easter is really early this year--i'm glad it won't be this early for 120 more years!!!

I live in Poland and after 40 days of Lent comes the Easter holiday. It begins with Palm Sunday. On Good Friday people are supposed not to eat meat. On Easter Saturday we go to church to bless eggs and other food, which are earlier papered and put in a colourful basket. Eggs are painted and decorated with different patterns. These colourful eggs are called "pisanki" or "kraszonki";) To the basket we put also some bread, meat or a sausage, some sweats and salt. Easter eggs are a symbol of the new life :D On Easter Saturday people visit also the tomb of Jesus Christ. Tradition says that the tomb must be looked after young boys or men the whole night before the Easter Sunday :P

Nowadays, the Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first spring full moon, but in the past the Christians celebrated it at the time of Jewish Passover. On Easter Sunday morning the Christians take part in the procession around the church and in the holy mess called Resurrection. We also gather to have the Easter breakfast. We eat the blessed food from the baskets :tongue: There is also a lamb on the table which symbolizes Jesus Christ. To the modern tradition belongs an Easter bunny. Children believe that bunny brings them some presents such as sweets or small chocolate eggs. lol1 On Easter Monday boys splash girls with water. boat It is an old tradition which dates back from the antiquity. Our forefathers splashed fields with water to weak up The Earth Mother. Nowadays, this funny tradition is called "Smingus dyngus". But some of us, especially girls, sometimes are tired of it. Easter is the oldest and the most important Christian holiday... 001_cool

Well... HAPPY EASTER!!! lol1

It didn't snow here on Easter (New Hampshire, USA). Or rain. But it was horribly windy; like seriously, i was almost thrown off my feet. ^.^ but other than that, easter was normal.
