In the USA we have a holiday called Easter. Easter has a lot of festivities. In my family I go down to my Grandma’s for easter. We usually wake up to seeing our Easter baskets full of candy. After that we have a Easter egg hunt. We have two winners, one is for the most eggs and the other is to find the golden egg. Then we have an easter egg dyeing contest. Which you paint Easter eggs. Then we have a traditional Easter dinner. We usually have pork. That is basically what you do on Easter for my family.


  1. Hello there. Hope you had a great Easter this year!

    I am from Venezuela. My favorite holiday growing up was Carnavales, or Carnival in English. You might know it as Mardi Gras. It was a chance to wear costumes and have water balloon fights with all the kids on the street. I remember dressing up as a baby chick, a cow girl and a medieval princess, but we took off the costumes before the water balloons came out!

    I am now living in Egypt. We have a long weekend this week because on Sunday, the Egyptians celebrate Orthodox Easter and on Monday, the whole country celebrates Sham el Nessim, a spring festival from the time of the pharaohs. People go on picnics to eat spring onions and a smelly pickled fish. There are murals on ancient temples showing the pharaohs celebrating spring with that same food. That means it was a festival celebrated 5000 years ago!

    Hope all of your celebrations are fun and full of joy.
