Easter in Germany – a springtime tradition

For many German families, Easter is the first occasion to go outside to celebrate after a long winter. The children hunt for Easter eggs in the garden, while the adults go for walks to enjoy the mild spring air. Germans maintain many traditions and customs that make Easter, the most important Christian feast, an enjoyable affair. 

One popular tradition that is still very much alive today is Easter egg hunting. Children especially love hunting for Easter eggs in the garden or around the house on Easter Sunday. Some families also hide nests containing small gifts, or they hold competitions at the breakfast table in which two people knock the tips of their hard-boiled eggs together and the one whose egg stays whole is the winner. Depending on the region, this tradition is known as ‘ticken’, ‘düpfen’, ‘ditschen’, ‘tüppen’ or ‘kitschen’.
