Easter is always an exciting time of year – partly because it creeps up unexpectedly when you assumed you still had a week or so left before you could crack open your eggs. And if you're anything like us here at Choc n Choc, you're always so distracted by the delicious chocolate everywhere that you forget it falls at a different time every year.
So, once and for all: here's why Easter falls on different dates.
Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, to put it simply. The most common date for Easter in the West is 19 April. The earliest it can fall is 22 March, and the latest is 25 April.
The confusing system for working it out comes from Hebrew, Roman and Egyptian calendars, culture and customs.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, feels the confusion, too. He’s said he hopes churches can agree on a fixed date for Easter within the next decade.
It’s probably best to just eat chocolate all year round, just to be on the safe side.
If there's one question on everyone's lips at the moment, it's:
How do you carry out a good old fashioned Easter egg hunt? Well, whether it’s for kids or grown-ups (we won’t judge) here’s how to have the best Easter egg hunt this year.
Assuming your Easter egg hunt will be taking place in a garden of some sort, you’ll need to carefully consider how you’re going to ensure your Easter treats are well hidden.
Whether this means gluing green shredded paper onto the boxes of your eggs, or wrapping them in green foil, you need to think about how they're going to blend in. Another way to ensure your Easter eggs are camouflaged is to make sure you pick ones that resemble nature and its woodland creatures, to throw your hunters off the scent.
Our Belgian chocolate bunny with gold egg is sure to blend in.
2. False alarms
You will need to place a few false alarms along the way to throw people off the scent. Position a bit of foil, ribbon or cardboard - or anything that shines and catches the eye - among some bushes to trick your hunters. Trust us - it's all part of the fun
3. Quality and quantity
You don’t want your hunters to uncover a giant Easter in the first five minutes, because that would mean it’s game over pretty quickly. Opt for smaller treats instead, so there’s more to go around and your hunters will be occupied for longer. Also, smaller Easter treats are easier to hide.
