HAPPY EASTER TO THE WORLD!


Easter is a major religious festival of Christians celebrated with feasts, fasting and prayer.
Every nation has its own way of celebrating a particular festivity.

IN ENGLAND

The name Easter comes from 'Oestre', the Anglo-Saxon goddess of fertility and springtime.
There are country-wide Easter traditions, such as giving Easter eggs, Easter bread and hot cross buns. A common Easter custom is the baking of bread and hot cross buns on Good Friday.

IN OUR COUNTRY, PORTUGAL

Easter in Portugal is celebrated with sweet bread called Folar da Pascoa. The bread is usually served at breakfast on Easter morning but more often as a dessert after Easter dinner.
On Easter Sunday Portuguese serve a meat plate at the dinner table as the feature dish. Roasted pig 'Leitao' is popular accompanied by roasted potatoes and other vegetables, along with fresh bread.
A popular sweet served during Easter is a candied almond dish called Amendoas, which usually come in a mixture of colours and flavours.
