With belief in the resurrection  of Christ being so central to Christianity, Easter (falling on April 16 this year), and its lead-up, is a very meaningful time for Christians all around the world, with many attending church services even if they wouldn’t ordinarily do so.

But in the melting pot of Australia, cultural differences abound among various multicultural audiences celebrating Easter. The Greek Orthodox faith – for one – has some particularly noteworthy traditions around Easter.

  • 90 per cent of Australian adults actively use the internet and almost all Australian businesses are connected
  • Three quarters of Australians use mobile phones to access the internet, making us one of the most mobile connected countries in the world
  • The average Australian household has 8 connected devices
