Egg Hunting During Easter

Easter Egg hunting now adays is becoming popular. Actually i never experience this when i was young. I was in the remote area of the Northern Part of the Philippines and really never experienced this before. What i only remember was my parents slaughter one pig or goat for a good meal for the whole family. They believe that it is a feast day because Jesus Christ has risen from death.
My kids are lucky too because at their earlier age have already attended egg hunting when they attended one church activity. The games now is usually held in the malls, hotels and to churches and communities that attracts so many Filipino families.
During the hunts , true eggs or eggs made out of chocolate candies, of various sizes and designs are hidden in different places for children to find them. it is really an exiting game for children that i myself as a mother of one kid trying to find those eggs was excited too.
Easter gets a lots of commemorations, observations in Europe and also America. They prepare good meal too and call it as Easter Bread.

Sana dito sa Japan magkaroon din ng ganyang event kaya lang mostly hindi mga Christians ang mga tao dito.(T_T)
