Latest trends in UK's Easter celebrations
Easter (named after the Anglo- Saxon goddess of spring Eostre) is one of the brightest Christian holidays, celebrated worldwide. While traditions in different countries vary, almost all of them have something in common- Easter eggs. They are the symbol of Easter along with the Easter bunny and the cross.
Nevertheless, celebrations have changed over the years in the UK. The traditional boiled and painted eggs have been surpassed by chocolate eggs and sweets. Probably if you give a child a boiled egg in 2015, they would definitely be puzzled.
