Location is a key factor when it comes to considering the best place in the world to relocate to, and this is also just as true when witnessing the world’s major events. Little do many of us know that the global calendar is full each year with a whole range of fascinating, exciting, vibrant and historical events that take place in even the most far-flung corners of the world. Understanding the significance of each of the celebrations, carnivals and religious holidays that take place in their respective countries offers you a much better insight into their culture and allows you to observe and take part in them with a greater respect for their meaning. If you would like to learn a little more about the types of events that take place around the world to examine which country would be the best fit when it comes to relocating, here are some of the best global events taking place in April:
 
Global Events In April

Easter

While many countries across the world participate in some form of Easter celebration, Easter in Russia is among one of the most important religious holidays. Most Russians celebrate the event by baking kulich (a yeast cake), making paskha (a cottage cheese shaped pyramid) and colouring/dyeing eggs. Easter was actually the only religious holiday that was still celebrated during Soviet rule, which is perhaps why it is considered to be so important and why its traditions are still passed through the generations.


Queen’s Day

On the 30th April each year (or on the 29th April should the 30th fall on a Sunday), Amsterdam in the Netherlands erupts into celebrations for Queen Beatrix and this day is famous for being a wild and exciting party! While this event is celebrated nationwide, there is certainly an added level of party atmosphere in the capital.


Songkran Water Festival (The Thai New Year)

Between the 13th and 15th April, you will find the Songkran Water Festival being celebrated throughout Thailand in a celebration of a time when the country pays respect to the Buddha and seeks the blessings of elders. Water is a highly significant element in this rowdy yet respectful festival - you will see images of the Buddha be bathed alongside the younger Thais, pouring scented water onto their hands.


Semana Santa (Holy Week)

The Semana Santa takes place during what we know to be ‘Easter week’ and is celebrated in places such as Antigua, Spain and Guatemala. Easter is a very important celebration across the many Spanish speaking countries, but is very much revered across the world in Antigua primarily, where streets become covered in flower petals and coloured sawdust, creating quite the festival of colour!


The Budapest Spring Festival

Budapest Spring Festival is arguably one of the biggest cultural celebrations in Hungary and takes place annually between March and April. Venues across the city welcome all kinds of performers from within their own country and international participants making it a truly multicultural and diverse event.


New Orleans Jazz And Heritage Festival

From the last weekend of April and passing through to the beginning of May, you will find the Fair Grounds of New Orleans (USA) filled with the sounds of jazz music and an unmistakable party vibe. The Jazz Festival began in 1968 when the city celebrated its 250th birthday. The event has in the past attracted jazz legends such as Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck and Duke Ellington.


Sisters’ Meal Festival

The fascinating Sisters’ Meal Festival takes place on the 15th day of the third lunar month each year in parts of China and can be described as a stunning courtship ritual in which men and women seek out partners – it is often described as being the oldest Valentine’s Day! The festival involves wearing stunning traditional costumes and headdresses and eating four coloured sticky rice. The rice is dyed blue, yellow, pink and white to represent the seasons.
 
The best part about each of the aforementioned global events is that they aren’t exclusive – on the contrary, people want you to take part and celebrate with them! So, if you would be interested in knowing more about how you too could be participating in these events in coming years after moving to a different country, then be sure to get in touch with us. Our knowledgeable team can help you to work through any concerns you have about moving.
