Easter is the biggest Christian holiday. Some people celebrate it for religious reasons while others for non-religious ones. It is interesting to see different traditions and adaptations of Easter. They vary from country to country, region to region, and family to family. Since its beginnings, Easter has been a period of worship and feasting and many popular Easter games and practices occurred, such as egg rolling, egg tapping, pace egging, and egg decorating. 

Nowadays there are a lot of different approaches to Easter. Even numerous non-Christians celebrate this holiday while neglecting the spiritual viewpoints.  I love to learn about new cultures so I asked some of the bloggers to share their Easter traditions.



"Easter for me has always meant time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and a day to spend time with my family. I have always enjoyed Easter as it also reminds me that Springtime has begun. In my family, we always celebrated Easter at church. My whole life, my family and I would get up early dress up in our Sunday best, and go to church service. When I was little, I used to participate in the church's Easter egg hunts. 

When I got older, I would still go to church on Easter Sunday but usually, afterward, go out to eat for lunch with my family in a local restaurant. Due to COVID-19 last year and this year I will be celebrating Easter Sunday at home with a virtual church service. I still want to keep the tradition of eating out, as I am considering ordering lunch (even though I will most likely be eating and celebrating at home). I still enjoy Easter every year even though it may look different this year."

"Holy Week or Easter Week is a four-day-long event of healing, motivating, inspiring, and letting ourselves find small happiness in little things. Easter can't be neglect as it brings an important reminder that it's okay to lean on Him as his son or daughter. Let me share some 
As part of Asian countries, Many families are supposed to travel from your city address to your province. When you are celebrating Easter, you are supposed to attend a family reunion in your hometown. Including your first family up to your relatives. Some travelers also choose to visit churches or museums for delivering personal prayer for blessings and learn about the history of each scripture in those paintings.

Also, many Filipinos who love to travel takes advantage of the long holiday. Travel somewhere to free their mind and heart with de-stress holiday pleasures during Easter Week."


"Some people also perform various acts to cure their sins or go to the church each day during Easter Week. There is the mini stageplay of the re-enactment of the story of Jesus, Son of God. From the base story until the end from Holy Thursday until Good Friday. There is also a long-walk tradition called "Alay-Lakad," where most people join a walking marathon from one devotion church to another until 24 hours.

On the last day, Easter Sunday, the most family go back to their respective home and pay a church visit again to celebrate Easter or Ressurection Day that many knows. Filipinos attend the morning vigil. They celebrate "Salubong" to commemorate the meeting of the Mary and the Risen Jesus."

"For me, celebrating Easter is not only on the top of my list of importance of holidays, but just as important as Christmas. It is a time to first reflect on all that happened on Good Friday when Jesus was crucified for our sins, dying on a cross and shedding His blood. So we are overwhelmed, as we remember what He did for us. It is a time to thank Him in prayer and repent of all our sins. It is a time, we renew our hearts and surrender our lives. You see, the story of His death does not end on Friday, but brings us to the incredible Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Sunday. 
Overall my traditions would include time at church both on Good Friday and Sunday in celebration of Jesus’ Resurrection (Easter). Time with family is very important to me during this time, as we come together not only at church but for dinner. It is during these times that we remember that it is not only about dressing up, special dinners, etc. but that we reflect on what the true meaning of Easter is. This is not just a religious event but a time of faith for every believer in Jesus.

About me: Over time, I have come to realize that we must take pauses or we are just experiencing life passing us by quickly! Every day there are several moments we can perhaps all talk about and be an encouragement to someone else.
