I hope you enjoyed your Spring Festival Break !
Spring is coming slowly but surely. The come back of Spring season is celebrated around the world through different traditions.
One of them is related to Chocolate Eggs and Easter decorations !
You may have already seen and tasted some wonderful decorated chocolate eggs or rabbits or hens at Easter period… where does this tradition come from?
On Easter day, Christians do celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, a mystery related to Life renewal. Easter day is celebrated in Spring season (April 22nd this year), which is also the time for Nature renewal.
It is a tradition to eat some decorated chocolate delicacies (egg-shaped or rabbit or hen-shaped). They are hidden in the house garden and picked up by the children who are gathering to celebrate Easter Day. This Easter Egg Hunt is a fun time for every kid! The traditional story says that church bells are super active on Easter day, representing Life and Joy, and that they sample chocolate eggs everywhere. The eggs are always colorful, decorated and nice looking.
A few centuries ago, before the chocolate egg did appear, real eggs were decorated and offered on Easter day. The period before Easter, where Christians do prepare themselves to Easter day, is a period during which people were not allowed to eat eggs. These eggs were stocked, nicely decorated and were offered as a present on Easter day to neighbors, family relatives…
