Happy Easter!

Easter traditions around the world

The day after Easter young boys try to get girls wet with water guns or buckets of water. The tradition says girls who get soaked will marry within the year.

In the morning of Holy Saturday people throw clay pots with water out of their windows. This symbolizes the coming of spring and new harvest season.

On Easter Monday people make a giant omelet and serve it in the town’s main square. It can feed up to 1000 people.

People have “egg battles” – they knock two hard-boiled eggs. The egg which shell doesn’t break – wins and the loser has to eat all the boiled eggs the winner breaks.

On Easter people make their own kites with wooden sticks, colorful paper and a special “hummer” on the top. They then gather and fly them in the sky.

Guys give the girl they like a pretzel on said Sunday. If she accepts the treat, the guy is allowed to visit the girl on Easter Sunday and will get an egg in return.

People organize a parade through the town during which they explode a big cart. They believe it’s for a good harvest.

On Easter kids dress up in witch costumes and walk in the streets asking for treats.
