    Love seeing the different traditions! It makes me want to visit all of these countries at Easter…to eat all the good food and enjoy the celebrations!

    Thank you for sharing these Easter traditions around the world. The witches of Finland were definitely an eye-opener! I celebrated my first Easter in Greece, and it was incredible. Everyone stood on the esplanade in Corfu Town and at the start of the service, we all had lit candles- a flame that was passed around starting from the Bishop giving the service. At midnight the cross on the old fort lit up and there were fireworks. It was amazing. Easter is my favorite holiday because of that 🙂

    Love the info about Finnish celebrations! There’s a bunch of Spanish and Latin American celebrations you could add too, as well as maybe what happens on Easter Island! Eggciting.

  5. So interesting! As Bulgaria is between Greece and Romania, we do honor both traditions you’ve described hehe :)) I’ll totally be missing the Orthodox Easter this year, as we’ll use the few days off to visit Brussels… Oh well! 🙂

    Great post! I’m familiar with how Easter is celebrated in the US but it was nice to see how other cultures around the world do.
