Easter All Around The World – Not Necessarily The News
In this edition of "Not Necessarily The News," Tootie takes a look at Easter celebrations all around the world!
"Hey! I'm Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today!
It's Easter time and celebrations around the world include church services and, of course, waiting on the Easter Bunny! However, I've done some research and found out some strange traditions and weird customs from around the globe. For instance, in the Czech Republic women can expect to get a whipping! Not the black and blue kind, but a tapping to make them more beautiful and healthier.
In Australia, the endangered species Bilby brings the Easter eggs to promote their awareness and the dislike of the bunnies destroying their crops.
One of the strangest is the country of Columbia. Talk about a weird tradition! Instead of eggs and chocolate bunnies, they dine on turtles, iguanas and large rodents for Easter! Trip advisor really needs to post this for travelers headed that way!
The Greeks paint all their eggs red. Hungarian women get water splashed on them. No indication that's related to their body odor either!
And finally, my favorite is from the country of Russia! Butter is sculpted into the shape of a lamb which is served at their Easter meal. The only thing I can think of that would be better than butter, is if the Lamb was made of bacon!
And I'm Tootie Landry and this is 'Not Necessarily the News'!"
