Eggs, sweets and other Easter treats…
🥚 One of the most entertaining Easter tradition in Romania is the “egg battle”, an egg championship in which all friends and family participate. Each round of the game consists of knocking two hard-boiled eggs. The egg with the toughest shell wins and the loser has to eat all the boiled eggs the winner breaks.
🍬 Easter in Sweden sounds a lot like Halloween. Children dress up as Easter witches wearing long skirts, colourful headscarves and painted red cheeks. They go from door to door in their neighbourhoods trading paintings and drawings in the hope of receiving sweets.
🍲 In Corfu, Greece, the tradition of “Pot Throwing” takes place on the morning of Holy Saturday. People throw pots or pans out of their windows, smashing them on the street. Some say the custom of throwing of pots welcomes spring, symbolising the new crops that will be gathered in new pots.
🙏 There are around seven million Catholics in Indonesia. Christianity was brought here by Portuguese missionaries. Young men consider it an honour to play Jesus and be tied to the cross.
