  1. You can call a basket:

    Canasta
    Cesta
    Cesto

    They are all synonyms and can be used replacing each other at anytime. So Easter basket could be canasta de pascua / cesto de pascua / cesta de pascua.

    The only time it cannot be replaced is when translating Basketball. That is just because it already has a name which is Baloncesto.

  2. I am really curious about why you keep asking the same question, even though you have gotten excellent answers. And anyway, there are no Easter baskets in Mexico, expept maybe for foreigners who make them for their kids. Mexicans do not do the Eater basket, colored egg thing.
