    1 Animals usually have their young in the spring in England.
    2 Lent is the time before Easter when Christians decide to fast for 40 days.
    3 I grew up in Germany. As children, we used to have to look for hidden easter eggs. Is that what English children do too?
    4. Christians celebrate Easter because it commemorates the time when Jesus died on the cross and then rose again from the dead.
    5. Good Friday and Easter Sunday
    6. The leaves of palm trees were thrown on the ground for Jesus to walk on – a little like spreading a red carpet for a celebrity, I guess.
    7. Easter in German is Ostern. Happy Easter! is Frohe Ostern!
    8. Easter in Italian is Pasqua. Happy Easter! is Buona Pasqua!

    I have enjoyed doing your quiz, John.
