Popular Easter Dinner Traditions

Jewish celebration of the Passover

In a traditional Jewish celebration of the Passover, lamb is the meal of choice. Symbolizing God’s promise to the chosen people, a lamb was cooked and eaten. The blood of the lamb was spread over the doorway to keep the family safe. God promised to the Jewish people that if the blood was on the door posts, He would pass over them and keep their first born children safe.

Traditional feast

Today, most people serve ham as the traditional feast for the Easter dinner table. Ham is easy to prepare and is a popular food to serve at the dinner table for Easter Sunday. Add to that a potato dish from scalloped potatoes, to twice baked potatoes, to mashed potatoes, and you have the perfect main course for the Easter feast. Easter signals to us the beginning of springtime. You can add spring vegetables to the dinner ranging from asparagus to green beans. Because this is a celebration, we typically see rich foods accompanying the main course.

Easter Turkey Dinner

Other alternatives to Easter dinner can include turkey with all the fixings, or a prime rib of roast beef. Both of these entrees can bring with them different side dishes ranging from pasta salads to green salads and a variety of vegetable choices including corn, beets, peas and carrots, as well as cauliflower with cheese sauce.

Easter Desserts

Desserts too are very festive and signal the coming of the spring and summer seasons. Fresh fruit typically fit into the pattern of Easter desserts with some form of chocolate and lots of whipped cream! Sponge cake, biscuit or pound cake smothered in raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, topped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate can be one form of dessert. Fruit pies topped with whipped cream or ice cream can be another option. Still, one can also see a warm pot of chocolate and strawberries, bananas, oranges, and more ready to be dipped and devoured.

Easter dinner can bring its own traditions depending on one’s beliefs and attitudes. Planning and carrying out this wonderful meal can be fun and rewarding, and you can even start your own traditions. The point of the Easter celebration meal is to bring families together. Don’t forget the hardboiled and dyed eggs, the bread rolls and the Easter candy. These are staples of the day, and you can plan your meal around foods your family enjoys.

Happy Easter!
