IN THIS ISSUE
They're celebrating around the world.
In Australia we're looking forward to Easter and Anzac Day but there are celebrations and festivals happening all over the world.
From Ching Ming in China and the Spring Festival in Japan, to Passover in Israel and Isra Mi,raj in Indonesia, and St Patrick's Day in Ireland, people will be getting together to observe religious and secular festivities.
We've put together a feature on these celebrations which provides an understanding of their significance and how people might choose to celebrate in Australia and elsewhere around the world. You can find out more HERE.
There's a special international Food feature.
No celebration is complete without festive food. We've hunted down some traditional recipes you might like to try to get into the spirit of the occasions. There's something for everyone and hopefully something you might never have tried to make before. You can find out more HERE.
And the winner is...
