For Easter Sunday, which is celebrated on April 17, you can already buy the most varied and colorful chocolate eggs made with the best cocoa in the world, Venezuelan.
Giving away chocolate eggs at Easter is a western custom, celebrated mainly in the United States, England and central European countries, however, as has happened with many traditions in the world, it has spread to many other countries.
Venezuela has not been an exception, and there are more and more chocolatiers that invite you to join this tradition with its varied and colorful chocolate eggs made with the best cacao from Venezuela.
Why are chocolate eggs given at Easter?
The tradition of giving away chocolate eggs at Easter is related to the Lent. The Christians and Catholics who complied with this tradition could not eat meat or its derivatives, and to keep the eggs fresh during all those weeks, they covered them with a layer of liquid wax.
After Lent ended, they gathered in front of the church of their city and gave them as gifts.
But since the Catholic Church began to allow the eating of animal products during Lent, with the exception of meat on Easter Fridays, this tradition of painting and decorating chicken and turkey eggs has ceased to make sense, and so many chocolatiers decide make them of chocolate to market them mainly among the religious faithful, so that they would maintain the tradition of giving them away on Easter Sundays.
