Okay! Let’s start!

Tom, from the United States, and Sarah, from Australia, were catching up on a video call before the Easter holiday. As they started chatting, they quickly realized they had different traditions and plans for celebrating the holiday.

Let's listen to their conversation:

Tom: Hey, Sarah! Happy Easter!

Sarah: Happy Easter to you too, Tom! I hope you're doing well.

Tom: Yes, I'm doing great. So, what are your plans for Easter this year?

Sarah: I plan to attend church and celebrate Easter with my family. We usually have a big Easter dinner and spend time together.

Tom: That sounds lovely. I'm also planning to celebrate Easter with my family. We usually have an Easter egg hunt and decorate Easter eggs.

Sarah: Oh, that's a great tradition. We also decorate Easter eggs but don't have an egg hunt.

Tom: That's interesting. Every family has their own traditions.

Sarah: Definitely. What other traditions do you have for Easter?

Tom: We usually go to church and have a big Easter brunch. We also exchange Easter baskets filled with candy and small gifts.

Sarah: That sounds like so much fun. We don't exchange Easter baskets but give each other Easter cards.

Tom: That's sweet. Do you have any special Easter foods that you eat?

Sarah: Yes, we usually have ham, deviled eggs, and hot cross buns.

Tom: That sounds delicious. My family has roasted lamb, mashed potatoes, and asparagus.

Sarah: That sounds amazing. It's interesting to see how different cultures celebrate the same holiday.
