The holiday runs from Good Friday to Easter Monday and gives many people a four-day weekend.

Over 800,000 Hong Kong Christians attend church services at Easter. The churches in Hong Kong range from Catholic to Anglican to Orthodox to a variety of Protestant. Sunday is a significant day as many families attend services then gather for a large buffet celebration lunch.

Around town, the shops are open and, because China does not have Easter holidays, many come from the mainland and other places to visit family, shop and enjoy recreation. Easter bunnies and Easter eggs are the decorations adding excitement and colour to the streets and shops. Schools, post offices and government offices are closed.

Many restaurants in Hong Kong cater for families also, especially for little ones – providing play areas, Easter eggs and Easter egg hunts for their enjoyment. And hotels, like Le Meridien Cyberport, have special packages for families that include luxury rooms, kids’ packs and cinema tickets.

At Easter, many have a fun bet at the Sha Tin racetrack but generally there are no significant events, like those of other festivals like Christmas and Lunar New Year, on the Easter weekend in Hong Kong. The Easter weekend is simply a superb way for people to have a very long and happy weekend with friends and families.
