Easter is nearly upon us and will be celebrated across the world! Here in the UK we have seen chocolate eggs of all sorts on our market shelves for weeks. However, Easter is not celebrated the same way everywhere in the world. Some countries have their own traditions and some, believe it or not, dont have chocolate eggs!
How do different countries and cultures celebrate Easter around the world? From Easter Bilbys in Australia to whipping devils in the streets of El Salvador and huge street processions in Spain - Easter isnt just chocolate eggs!

Looking to trade with Africa? Make sure you don't approach it as one homogenous block - nothing illustrates the diversity of the continent more than its languages.
