It's fun to see how families around the globe celebrate Easter. Some traditions are familiar to those in the USA, like looking for the Easter Bunny or decorating Easter eggs, but there are many other ways people mark the holiday. 

Some traditions are built around Christianity and the resurrection of Jesus. In contrast, others focus more heavily on bunnies, eggs, and tons of chocolate and cakes.

Eggs, of course, are the most traditional Easter food. Whether made of chocolate in the UK, painted in bright colors and patterns in the USA, painted red in Greece, or covered in intricately designed patterns in many Eastern European countries, eggs symbolize rebirth throughout the holiday.

Meat is another staple of many Easter Tables. In countries worldwide, including the USA, Ham is the rock star, but Lamb is also very traditional, particularly in European countries like Greece and France.

But although many places worldwide celebrate Easter by loading up the dinner table with all the season's tastes, they do something different in Ethiopia and practice a fasting period similar to Lent in the Western church. All meat and animal products are off the menu until after Sunday service, when they break their fast with a rousing celebration full of food, dancing, and family.

Hot cross buns are an Easter favorite in the UK, New Zealand, and Australia. The buns actually date back to Pagan times, and the cross-on top was used by bakers to ensure a successful bake and ward off evil spirits.

Chocolate bunnies were popularized worldwide by the chocolate aficionados at Lindt. In Australia, though, rabbits are considered a pest. In 1991, a campaign was launched to replace the Easter Bunny with the "Easter Bilby," with funds raised from the chocolate to help the endangered bandicoot. Don't worry; Australian kids still enjoy biting their ears off.
