« Klibberen », Easter traditions in Luxembourg in March/April

Easter is a great religious celebration (the majority of the Luxembourgish population is Christian), which gives bank holidays on Easter Monday.

From Maundy Thursday, this tradition gets children wave their clappers and noisemakers as they go through the streets of their village whilst waiting for the bells sent to Rome after the Holy Thursday mass. In return, they receive Easter eggs and money on Easter Sunday.

During the Easter period, Christians attend the religious services.  Besides the religious mores, Easter is mostly a family feast with the traditional Egg Hunt. The children participate, looking for the eggs brought by the Easter Rabbit (Ouschterhues).

2 weeks of vacation are given to the children in schools and lycées.
