The Best Way to Celebrate Easter

There isn’t a unique way to celebrate Easter in the world: every country has its own traditions and beliefs and this occasion gives a different value.

Easter Traditions

In Northern Europe, for example, Easter is celebrated with the arrival of Spring. Sweden and Finland are blessed with popular branches with white gems on Palm Sunday. The ritual children perform the week before Easter has medieval origins: dress up as witches and distribute their letters in exchange for candy. Typical food for the Easter holidays in Finland is the “Pasha” made of cheese and the “Mammi”, a rye pudding. In Sweden, they eat colored, hard-boiled eggs. In Denmark, the houses are decorated with flowering branches and painted eggs, in Easter Sunday the entire family gathers for a cold buffet and the children get the chocolate bunny.

Church bells in France remain silent until Good Friday as a sign of grief for Jesus Crucified. The children are told to fly to Rome before returning on Easter Sunday. When they ring the bell, children begin the search for chocolate eggs hidden by their parents before the festivities.

The Easter fires burned hand with pieces of wood or with a large lens are German custom. In Germany, it is the flame of the “sacred fire” as an Easter tradition, while the ashes scattered in the gardens by farmers are the promising omen for the harvest. Cakes and dishes typical of the festival are the lambs and chocolate egg donated to children from a bunny named “Osterhase”.

They celebrate two events in Israel: the Christian Easter and the Jewish holiday of “Passah”. During Holy Week, there are processions through the various stages of the life of the Cross. The Jewish holiday of “Passth” begins on the Thursday before Easter and remember the exodus of the Jews in Egypt and lasts seven days.

How to celebrate Easter 

What better solution than celebrating Easter by chartering a luxury yacht in the Mediterranean, enjoying the awakening of the Spring season and its fruits? Or basking in the tropical sun of the Caribbean? Outside the best-known circuits, a wide range of proposals are often known only to insiders or “apasionados”. Going on vacation is not only an opportunity to leave the usual places and routines consolidated over the working year, but it can become an occasion to explore paths completely different, where not only regenerate physically but also emotionally, intellectually, and, why not, spiritually. The best solution is sure to combine the two primary elements, the Earth and the Sky, but without giving up the comfort and functionality of a yacht.
