Hi people how do u do?

This message is for my Portuguese colleagues (but if anyone can give me a good answer, please feel free to suggest something)
Here it goes:
I give private lessons to some 10th graders, and one of the students told me that her teacher had told the class  that they are have to  do a research work till the end of the 1st term.
She told her students that they have to talk about an English custom/tradition or a custom/tradition om from an English speaking country that we celebrate here in Portugal.
When she told me about that I could only think about Halloween but that is too obvious and probably other students are going to talk about it.
Can u think about another English custom/tradition or  an English speaking country custom or tradition that we celebreate here in Portugal?Ermm
My head is full of worries and I cannot think properly about this, probably it ´s too obvious, but I don ´t remember...
Hugs and thanks a lot for your reply...
Have a good evening

Hi, morganalin, Boa noite!
I may be wrong, but what about hiding Easter eggs and looking for them. I think it ´s a british/American tradition that we celebrate in portugal. (not so popular as HALLOWEEN but students know about it.) In Portuguese school, in AECs activities (1º ciclo), our colleagues usually play hide and seek eater eggs.
hope I ´ve helped you.
Cumprimentos,
Conceição
