What do the French think of Easter?
Like many other historically Catholic countries, France is a big fan of Easter. All around the country, you’ll see shopfronts and bakeries decorated with chocolate rabbits, chickens, bells, and other signs of spring.
Who brings the Easter eggs in France?
If you’re in the USA, on Easter Sunday it’s traditionally the Easter Bunny who brings chocolate eggs and treats to children across the country. In Australia, confectionery arrives courtesy of the Easter Bilby. In France, they’re delivered by someone slightly less fluffy: the flying bells (les cloches volantes).
