As said by Albus Dumbledore, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.”

Easter egg decoration
The tradition of decorating eggs date back to ancient Pagans. The eggs represent new life and rebirth, linked with Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection. In Christianity, Easter eggs symbolizes a empty tomb, from which Jesus had resurrected.
The old tradition of staining eggs red was done in the memory of the blood of Jesus Christ, which was shed during crucifixion. Throughout the years the decorations have evolved too, that means, you can let the artist in you work freely! The decoration of eggs is an important part of the Easter celebrations.
Following the oldest tradition, you can sit down with your family and dye chicken eggs and decorate them as you wish. You can even opt for a modern version, a decorated chocolate or plastic eggs filled with candy— an easier option for your Easter celebration.
You can make these chocolate eggs at home with the help of Silicone molds. Our pick is 3D Easter Egg Shape Silicone Mold From Amazon.
Easter egg hunt with the Easter Bunny
All of us have heard about the ‘Easter Bunny.’ It is a folklore creature in the form of a rabbit, a symbol for Easter, a bringer of joy to the Easter celebrations. The origins of the bunny lie in the German Lutherans as the Easter hare. The hare comes as a judge, whether the kids were on good or bad behavior, similar to another famous figure, Santa Claus. Be sure you’re not on his naughty list, or you may just lose your Easter Basket!
