The day when some Mexicans say "Happy Fifth-Of-May" [in Spanish]...

Alti Mayis(Ours is 6th not 5th)  :) It's also known as Hidrellezs. Oh, and most common Turkish beers are Efes, Tuborg, Tekel and Bomonti.

Turkish Tuborg is a partner of the Danish Carlsberg Breweries  :)

They have huge brewery plants here, so even if the brand name is Danish, the beer is being produced  here, so i considered it Turkish  :)

Absolutely, particularly if it's like the "American" brands (mostly owned by European companies now)
that make a completely different beer under the same brand for the European market.  I'm told the
beer they sell as "Budweiser" in Europe is actually decent stuff.

Well i usually like vodka better. But if i am to drink beer, Tuborg is barely a choice for me. I mostly drink any kind of Efes. Well, from Mariachi to Dark, its production range is made of awesome. And as for the Tekel beer, haha, needles to say, any kind of drink or cigarette produced by a public corporation is just gross. I once tried Tekel's Vodka and the other day i was so horribly hangover that i thanked god for i hadn't gone blind.

Easter is here! I am not a big fan of Easter, especially that part when women get beaten by a wooden stick (that is a Czech tradition), which is tomorrow.
Do you celebrate Easter? What do you do? Do you eat lamb?

please explain, I have not even a vague notion of the why behind such a tradition.

Also, it depends on most families preference, most enjoy ham or turkey. Lamb is less popular in the states because most don't know how to properly prepare it and it also costs more per pound than either one of the former proteins mentioned.

The beating tradition: on Easter Monday men spank women with a special stick made of willow rods and get coloured eggs in exchange. It is a ritual that is meant to assure health and fertility. In some regions men also throw cold water on women. Lovely, right? I really detest it.

Happy Easter, guys!

1. My family? No.
2. On friday, catholic (any branch) families eat "white meat", generally, fish. Actually, I think they eat fish meat until monday. Here in Brazil, we eat chocolate eggs / chocolate in general. Religious catholic people go to church and celebrate Christ's crucifixion and resurrection. Roman Catholic people usually go to cities like Nossa Senhora de Aparecida and other cities that celebrates or have festivals (like Ouro Preto. Ouro Preto being the city, not the festival).  I can't think of anything else. 
3. Some families probably do, but lamb is an expensive meat here, not very traditional.

It is very interesting to read your answers, thanks spider and sangre! I am surprised that lamb is not traditional in other parts of the world. Maybe it is an european thing? It is quite pricey here too which is why most people eat it only during Easter.

Just to clarify: the chocolate thing usually happens on Monday.

And because of that, Easter is also a commercial date, where stores overprice chocolates and other kinds of sweet. I'm not a fan anymore of any 'holy days' or any date with commercial backgrounds.
