Whether you're getting away for foreign shores or staying at home for a lamb roast with the family, Easter celebrations in Britain follow a familiar pattern.

But around the world Christians mark the festival of rebirth in hundreds of different ways, as these images show.

For example, Christians in the Philippines whip themselves bloody with metal chains and are nailed to crosses to experience the suffering of Jesus as an act of holy penitence.

In Jerusalem, people also carry wooden crosses through the streets to honour Christ's sacrifice and remember the miracle of resurrection that followed.

Here pictures showing how different cultures mark Easter around the globe.
