Easter in pictures

Holy Week and Easter has just been observed right around the world.

The Atlantic has posted a picture gallery of 38  images depicting the different ways Easter has been observed.

“Families attended church services, hooded penitents took part in processions, and children hunted for Easter eggs. In Catholic passion plays, participants depicted Jesus’ trial and death. Other local rituals drew heavily on earlier pre-Christian traditions.”
