French Easter Traditions

March 09, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Easter learn teach kid

I did some research on French Easter Traditions and found lots of great information.

One Easter game that children play is they roll raw eggs down a slope. The person whose egg did not break is the winner.

Another game they play is to toss row eggs into the air. The person whose egg breaks first is the loser.

Poisson d’Avril means April fish. It’s chocolate in the shape of a fish. Children eat them in French throughout the month of April. They also have chocolate bells which symbolize the real bells that are rung on Easter Sunday for the Resurrection of Jesus.

Maybe you can incorporate some of these traditions in your family, though I’m not too sure about playing with raw eggs. 🙂
