Easter is one of America’s many holidays. Those who celebrate get excited about the Easter Bunny and waking up to lots of candy. This year, Easter falls on April 21.  

Every family has their own things they do to celebrate the holiday, whether its going to church or dying eggs.  

Photo teacher Jessica Voss has great childhood memories of the holiday. 

“My grandmother would always have an Easter egg hunt. She would put money in the eggs and jellybeans for the younger kids,” she laughed. 

Ms. Voss and her family also always have a huge dinner, with Yorkshire pudding being the highlight of the night. They also enjoy dying Easter eggs in fun, creative ways.  

Math teacher Matt Fannon always goes to church with his family on Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday.  

“We do an Easter egg hunt on Sunday with our kidsthey are 5 and 7,” he explained. 

Math teacher Hannah Laper has a different kind of celebration for Easter.  

“My mom’s a dentist, so she gives us presents not candy,” she laughed. “I always looked forward to getting an Easter outfit, that was what we got.”  

Her family also hosted an Easter egg hunt when she was younger, and Ms. Laper loved it. 

“We had Easter egg hunts when we were kids, was a pro,” she explained 

English teacher Greg Hill has a laid-back Easter day now that his kids are older.  

“We get together as a family, have a nice dinner. We also go to mass, and we try to go to the vigil of Easter Eve,” he shared. 

Secretary Faye Shivers goes all out with Easter decorations. Other than that, she just enjoys the holiday. 

“To celebrate the holiday, I have as much fun as I can. I don’t eat a lot of the candy though,” she laughed 

There are so many popular holiday traditions, but there are also some uncommon ways to celebrate the spring holiday around the world.  

In New Zealand, instead of hunting for eggs, they hunt for rabbits. To rid farmland from invasive pets, hunters go on a search for ‘The Easter Bunny’.  

In France, they create the world’s biggest Easter omelet. Families in Haux crack more than 4,500 eggs into a gigantic pan to create a massive Easter omelet that serves over 1,000 people. 

Chocolate isn’t big in steamy Papua New Guinea, so they decorate Easter Trees outside churches with tobacco and cigarettes.  

In Greece, you’ll only find red eggs. Red symbolized the renewal of life, and the message of the red eggs is victory over death and the renewal of lifethe message of the red eggs is victory over death. 

This year try out some new Easter Traditions!
