How Easter is celebrated globally

Easter origins from being a religious festival or holiday, hence why it is also known as Resurrection Sunday or Pascha which is the latin name.

In many places all around the world it has become a popular holiday to celebrate Spring and the start of a new season.
Easter is tightly related to figures such as the Easter Bunny (or Easter Hare), eggs and chickens.

In some places the Easter Bunny is not a rabbit but rather a fox, like in certain parts of Germany.

The eggs represent the birth of something new. When they are painted it is a way of bringing colors and light in to the home, similar to how Spring is welcomed after the long Winter.
