Happy Easter! Enjoy the long weekend!


Easter is a major holiday in Canada, which everyone loves. Catholic Easter in the country is held under the symbol of the Easter hare. It is believed that the hare brings gifts in a special basket. Easter for Canadians is not only a religious and ecclesiastical holiday. The holiday is beautifully celebrated by the whole country. They carefully prepare for it. 

The symbol of this holiday is the Easter Bunny, who holds in his paw’s basket with colored eggs. He is a constant participant of processions, carnivals and theatrical performances that are taking place in Canada on Easter Sunday almost everywhere. 

Canadians congratulate each other on Easter with beautiful cards, give sweets and chocolate eggs of different colors and sometimes huge sizes. Easter Sunday is the day of children’s games, competitions and contests. Since the weather is already warm enough, people usually go out for a picnic or long walks.
