Your wishes bring to my mind some questions... I was curious how You all celebrate the Easter in Your countries? For sure there are many differences if we consider the tradition, various culture, customs...
For example today in Poland, at the time like now, in the churches are blessings of the food, Easter-meal.
The people prepare the baskets with colorful cooked eggs, painted with many beautiful forms.
Then they put also other things like bred, oranges, salt, pepper, some special cakes, the lambs made by sugar, rabbits in chocolate... Do You have this tradition as well? How look the Easter in your regions ?:)
How we celebrate Easter...
The whole week in advance we've 'vespers', in the most denominations at least. The last friday it is extra sober, the saturday night it gets happier again. Easter morning we start with singing outside. How that's done is different everywhere. In the village where I live f.i. people walk through the streets singing. In Utrecht, where I was last weekend, we sang on the square in front of the Domchurch. I celebrated the whole weekend from friday there btw... and it was awesome!
At Easter morning we also have an Easter-breakfast, with eggs, nice bread, etc. At many places children can seek Easter-eggs.
