In both the United States and France, Easter is a religious holiday. However, the French tend to celebrate Easter as an entire weekend, rather than just on Sunday. The Easter celebration continues on Easter Monday, which is a national holiday in France, and businesses are closed. Memories are made spending time with family and friends!
Easter egg hunts are popular on Easter morning with children in France. However, the eggs are usually chocolate eggs, not hard-boiled.
Onto the most delicious part of the day, the Easter meal! Lamb is traditionally served with an herb rub for the main course, then a salad and cheese platter follows. Lastly, dessert! Something chocolatey is popular for Easter, but a berry tart isn't uncommon either.
