Easter Around The World

Easter isn’t just about chocolates and eggs…. different regions around the world hold different Easter traditions….  for example, in Germany:

just before the beginning of Lent, it is carnival time called Fasching. In Fasching parades in the city of Cologne, people wear masks and giant-sized papier-mâché heads, sometimes twice the size of their bodies.

Germans cook a type of thick doughnut called a Cruller to use up fat before Lent. In some villages people hold an Easter walk or ride in memory of the walk Jesus took to His death. On Easter Saturday night children light huge bonfires.

 

Sounds a lot like Mardi Gras and King Cakes to me!!  You can read about the Easter traditions from other parts of the world on the Easterbunny’s website!
