Con las vacaciones de Semana Santa a la vista, te explicamos cómo se celebran tradicionalmente estas fiestas en UK.
Everyone looks forward to holidays… Who doesn’t! Holidays are designed for us to enjoy ourselves, to forget about the daily routine, relax and do things we normally don’t have time to do.
How do we celebrate Easter in the UK?
Easter in UK is short (and usually rainy) holiday. We eat chocolate eggs and chocolate bunnies.
The normal thing to do is to go to the park with a picnic and “roll your egg”. This consists of rolling a chocolate or hard-boiled egg (previously painted by the owner) down a hill. It represents the stone in Christ’s tomb being removed before his resurrection.
