    Easter Around the World

    Easter in Britain

    In many parts of England dancers called "Morris dancers" perform on Easter Sunday. These dances are very old spring dances to frighten away the veil spirits of winter. The dancers wear white shorts, red sashes, black trousers and straw hats with lots of flowers and streamers. Red and green ribbons and little bells are tied onto the dancers. As the dancers move quickly the bells ring and the ribbons wave.

    In the town of Olney in Great Britain they have had pancake races on Shrove Tuesday for over 500 years.

    In Britain, traditionally simnel cake is baked for tea. Originally simnel cakes were given for Mother's Day.
