Across the world this weekend, people will be feasting to celebrate two major religious holidays.

Friday at sunset marks the beginning of Passover, the holiday remembering the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt.

And Sunday is Easter — the day Christians celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection.

These are serious stories in history and religion and still debated ... but both revolve around food.
