“Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.” Janine di Giovanni;
The first chocolate egg was born in 1873, in the UK, by. J. S. Fry & Sons, Ltd of Bristol. This was a British chocolate company owned by Joseph Storrs Fry and his family.
In 1847, Fry’s produced the first solid chocolate bar. The company also created the first filled chocolate sweet, Cream Sticks, in 1853. It became a division of Cadbury in the early 20th century. The original Somerdale Factory was closed, after 2010, where the first chocolate egg was born!
- People traditionally roll painted eggs down steep hills, as a game, on Easter Sunday. In the UK, children compete to see who rolls their egg the farthest.
- Easter Eggs are a symbol of new life and the gesture of giving eggs, at Easter, has been traced back to the Ancient Egyptians, Gauls, Persians and Romans.
- Every child in the U.K on average, according to a survey, receives £56 worth of chocolate eggs or presents; and 8.8 Easter Eggs, on average, are received per year by every child in the UK.
- The first Easter baskets looked like bird’s nests. The Easter Basket ritual has its origins in the German folklore of the Easter Hare. According to a German legend, for kids to come and gorge on them on Easter morning, a white hare would leave Easter baskets filled with candies, brightly coloured eggs and other goodies.
