Why do North Americans Eat Ham at Easter?
In the days before refrigeration, meat was killed in fall. People would cure and smoke their pork over the winter and it was usually ready to eat around Easter time. People usually didn't kill fresh meat in spring-time, so there wouldn't have been many options for meat. This made Ham a natural choice for an Easter celebration. This is especially true in North America where lamb has never been really popular.
