In the country you live in how do you celebrate easter?
In the United States there are many ways, Easter is celebrated which is based on the religion and up bringing of the individual. Our family celebrates Easter with giving thanks for the resurrection of Jesus, we have a nice dinner and the children hunt for Easter eggs.
Families take hen's eggs and boil them in water until the inside yoke is hard. The eggs are not eaten. The children paint the outside of the eggs various bright colors. They leave empty colorful wicker baskets in the living room. While the kids are asleep their parents fill the baskets with candy, chocolate, and toys. The children believe that the Easter Bunny had visited and brought the gifts. The adults gather up the hard-boiled eggs and hide them outside along with coloful plastic eggs filled with candy. The kids all get together and hunt for the eggs hidden all around. They get to keep whatever they find. Adults often wear lights colors and pastels when attending picnics.
Here in Jamaica Easter is traditionally celebrated in food and religious ceremony. Because Jamaica is a multicultural country, Easter is celebrated in various ways depending on your religion. However Easter is a mostly Christian celebration. Two most significant days for Jamaicans are Easter Sunday and Good Friday. Most people see the Lenten season as a period of fasting and so won't eat any meat during that period. In fact most families will only eat bun and cheese.
