From the pope leading the Good Friday service in the Vatican, to children hunting for eggs in the U.S. Easter is celebrated in many different ways around the world. Most of the celebrations relate to symbolism of fertility while in some countries the celebrations are about welcoming the spring season. In Central and Eastern Europe men playfully whip the bottom of women with a willow whip, in Finland children dress up as cute little witches and go asking for chocolate eggs in the streets while in Norway they read thrillers during Easter.
