  Easter means different things to different people. For Christians it is a time to remember the life and death of Jesus and to celebrate his resurrection. For others it is a time to give thanks for the end of winter and for the coming of spring; for new life and for new beginnings. For most it is a day to spend with friends and family and a time to enjoy a big feast.
  In this interesting volume from the “On my own holidays” series, readers will be able to find out how people celebrate Easter in Sweden, Ethiopia, Russia, Egypt, Mexico, the Philippines, Colombia, and Germany. In Sweden children dress up as Easter witches and go from door to door hoping for handouts of treats. In Russia children have Easter egg battles to see whose egg will crack first when they tap their eggs together.
  The authors ends the book by giving her readers a recipe to try.
