Easter is not all about hard-boiled eggs. You cannot make it with egg salads only! Let's honor Easter rabbit - the one who hides Easter eggs - by putting "him" on the festive table.
In germany they decorate their houses with easter stockings for example, dressed up fake rabbits for putting them on the table with a nice coloured sheet underneath it to make them stand out and like Christmas decoration balls and but they make them for easter as well and they do greetings cards and easter calendars for eachother.
. They decorate their gardens with eggs.
. Have party’s
. And mostly just celebrate.

There are some restrictions on selling alcohol, public performances and dancing. Public transport services usually run to the normal Sunday timetable but there may be some local variations.
