In Poland, Easter Monday is marked by people pouring water all over each other. Young children run around with water guns and buckets. The water is symbolic of a cleansing and rebirth.
We celebrate Easter with brightly coloured eggs, Easter-egg hunts, marshmallow bunnies, and baskets filled with treats. But how do other countries around the world celebrate Easter?
In Haux, France a really big Easter tradition is marked by the cooking—and eating—of a giant (think 4 500 eggs) omelette.
In Sweden kids dress up as Easter Witches and go around the neighbourhood asking for treats – like a mini-Halloween.
In Bermuda, Easter is celebrated by flying kites on Good Friday to represent the ascension of Christ into heaven.
