Hello Kitty Celebrates Easter Around the World
Hello Kitty likes to see what other countries do for Easter. Some of them are pretty fun! Did you know that in Sweden, the kids dress up as Easter witches, in old or discarded clothes and colorful headscarves and paint their cheeks bright red? Then they go from home to home exchanging their drawings or paintings for sweet treats. Sounds kind of like Halloween to me!
In Bermuda, they celebrate Easter by flying homemade kites, eating codfish and hot cross buns. The kite flying tradition is said to have come from a British officer who had trouble explaining Christ’s ascension and decided to use a kite, which traditionally is in the shape of a cross, to illustrate the ascension.
Corfu, Greece has another unique way to celebrate Easter. On Easter Saturday, they throw their pots and earthenware out their windows! Imagine the racket! They say it’s to ensure a new crop, to be gathered with new pots.
Now in the Czech Republic, there is a tradition of “Spanking,” where the young men spank the young women with willow branches decorated with ribbons. Now, it’s all in good fun, but according to legend, the willow is the first tree to bloom in the spring, so the branches are supposed to transfer the tree’s vitality and fertility to the women.
In parts of northwestern Europe, people build huge bonfires Easter Sunday and Monday. The history there seems to be to push away the darkness of the winter, and allow spring to finally take hold of the land. Nowadays, it’s just a great reason for communities to come together and have a great time!
Of course, here in the U.S., our President hosts the annual Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn on Easter Monday. All the kids invited roll their colored hardboiled eggs with a large serving spoon. This sounds like a lot of fun! I wonder if Hello Kitty will be invited this year.
