One of the advantages of Zoom is that we are able to travel round the world, learning about different customs for Carnival and Easter – and still be home in time for lunch! On 17 March 2021 Sue Fortescue gave a general overview of how Carnival and Easter are celebrated in countries where she has lived, and Pili Rodriguez Deus took a more detailed look at celebrations – and food – in Galicia and other Spanish-speaking countries.
