Just a quick check in as we head into the Easter weekend.

You might be used to an Easter weekend filled painted eggs, chocolate rabbits, and children sprinting to be the first to fill their baskets with brightly colored prizes- but Easter, like any holiday, is celebrated in different ways in different regions of the world.

In the spirit of Ole’s celebration of the vibrant soul Mexico, here are some links that will help you get a feel for some of the ways that people in Mexico will be celebrating this weekend:
