Easter holiday Sweet Bread customs and traditions

Updated: 6 days ago

Easter traditions are celebrated by many central and eastern European ethnic groups. The tradition was inherited by several West Indian nations. Since its origin, Easter has been a time of festivity and feasting, and many traditional Easter games and customs developed, such as egg rolling, egg tapping, pace egging, cascarones or confetti eggs, and egg decorating.

Today Easter traditions are commercially important, seeing wide sales of greeting cards and confectionery such as chocolate Easter eggs as well as other Easter meals, buns, Easter sweet bread, and cakes. Jamaican Easter bun and cheese is partaken on good Friday throughout the West Indies, especially the Jamaican Easter bun and cheese. It is frequently asked, why do Jamaicans eat bun and cheese for Easter? Easter holiday is celebrated differently by each country and the buns are uniquely prepared and named. Other names for Easter Bun include Jamaican Bun or sweet bread (Jamaica, United States, Canada, United Kingdom), Hot Cross Buns (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some parts of the United States), Colomba Pasquale (Italian Easter Bun), Osterbrot ( Germany Easter Bread). Whatever name it is called, or baking techniques, the buns are served with butter and/or variations of cheese. LEARN MORE
