Happy Easter, my dear readers! I hope you are enjoying this holiday with your loved ones.
As you know, Easter is one of the most important holidays on the Christian calendar. The New Testament of the Bible says that three days after Jesus was crucified, he rose from the dead. Jesus’s resurrection is the foundation of the Christian faith, symbolizing spiritual resurrection and God’s forgiveness of sin. Since Spain is a Catholic country, this is an important holiday for us. Streets are filled with religious processions from Thrusday through Easter Sunday and some people do not eat meat which is also part of the tradition. 

Of course, Easter also closely coincides with the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere. Because of this, many symbols of spring—bunny rabbits, eggs and flowers—have come to be associated with the Easter holiday.

Both Spain and the US celebrate this holiday but in different ways. One thing both have in common are Easter eggs. In some parts of Spain it's a tradition to gift chocolate eggs or other figurines (cartoon characters, soccer players, footballs...) to young children. My family has always followed this tradition so I've received this delicious treat every year for as long as I can remember. Since in Spain many of us live in apartments it's not common to have an egg hunt as in the US. Another thing we both do is decorating regular eggs.

The one in the photos is this year's chocolate egg. As you can see the presentation is very eye-catching!

Let me know how you've celebrated Easter Sunday on the comments below.
