An Italian tradition

In Italy, children receive a wrapped chocolate egg with a surprise in the middle. Their chocolate egg is the equivalent to our American Easter basket.

Being that it was Luca’a first Easter and in Italy, we wanted to give him an egg and let him have fun with it. It’s important to us that he learns not only the American tradition but also the Italian.

I personally love the idea of the American Easter Basket more.. Luca’s grandmother sent him an Easter basket full of goodies such as books, pacifiers, pacifier wipes, Lion King DVD, Baby clothes all bought with love. It just seems buying a chocolate egg isn’t so much thoughtful or not a lot of love goes into it.. Only my opinion of it.

Check out my friends blog about Easter Eggs in Italy.

I bought this Chocolate Egg at a lovely bakery a couple minutes walking distance from our home.. It was beautifully decorated and not to mention delicious..

He loved the egg!!

  1. Oh, sorry for all the different sizes of the photos.. I did this from my phone today.. Looks terrible.. Will try to fix it tonight.
    Yes, I think so too.. He is just so curious these days.. But he LOVED AND ADORED your Easter Basket more.. I like the Easter Basket idea better, because you can customize what you give the person. Love you
