Easter Family Traditions

Posted on



It is now just over a week until Easter and every family has their own Easter Family Traditions.

Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays for some people who are working but it does depend on where you work to get these holidays.

Chocolate eggs are the first thing that I associate with Easter and Cadburys chocolate eggs in particular as I love Cadburys chocolate. I started buying Easter eggs a couple of weeks ago, but I have had to buy some more as we have already eaten some of them. They were not very big Easter Eggs and Easter Eggs do come in different sizes as you know.

Everybody has different Easter Family Traditions.  In our house, we have home made salmon fish cakes on Good Friday.  This is a recipe that was handed down to me by my Mum.  I can never get them to taste as good as the ones my Mum used to make though. 

Every Easter I make pace eggs for us to dunch.  I boil them with onion skins, and this makes the egg shells go a deep red colour.  I boil a dozen eggs and cool them down, then put them in a bowl.  (You can also paint faces on the eggs if you wish).  Then on Easter Sunday, we each pick one of these eggs and take turns with each other dunching our eggs.  One person holds their egg so one end is at the front, which the other person bangs with their egg.  The purpose is to crack the other person's egg.  When one side has been dunched, the eggs are turned to their other side and the person who was dunched first, dunches the other person's egg.  The winning egg is the one which has not cracked.  The winning egg gets put at the top of the bowl for the winner to use at the next dunching of eggs which could be later on the same day or the next day.  The cracked eggs are then eaten, either on their own or made into sandwiches. 

I have been dunching eggs on Easter Sunday for more years than I care to remember.  I started doing this when I was a small child and have kept the tradition going with my own family.

For our Easter Sunday dinner we normally have some kind of a roasted meat such as chicken or beef. We used to always have a turkey for Easter as well as Christmas but have not done this for some years now.

Easter traditions will vary from country to country.  Have you got any Easter Family Tradition's that you would like to share?  If you do then please leave a comment below.
