Over the weekend, Christians from different corners of the world celebrated Easter in fervor. The celebrations took place in various forms: from religious processions to colorful parades and bunny-and-eggs celebrations. Last year, I was fortunate to witness one of the biggest Easter celebrations in the world – Seville’s Holy Week (Semana Santa) celebrations are known to be know the biggest and grandest in Spain, with larger-than-life processions taking place through out the city. This year, let’s go to different corners of the world to see how Easter is celebrated. From Europe to Latin America, I’ll let these photos take us around the world.
