The Easter Bells come with Chocolate Eggs

Happy Easter! Here in France the children will go out in the garden to look for chocolate eggs. The Bells - les Cloches - have left them there. Don't ask me about the story behind it.... well, according to Wikipedia, the bells are silent and mourning since Thursday, then they go to Rome and coming back they bring the eggs and spread them out. Strange tradition!

In Sweden the children get loads of candy in fancy decorated eggs made of carton. Then we paint real eggs and use feathers to decorate branches of trees.

This weekend we are going to Paris to see my husband's brother. Maybe I will share a few photos from the City of Lights when I come back...
