Easter Candy Traditions

Easter Candy & Basket TraditionsThe tradition of giving candy gift baskets to loved ones and friends on Easter first started with an old-world celebration for the onset of spring.

The break of winter and the changing season was marked by brightly colored feasts and family gatherings that celebrated new beginnings, growing communities, the gift of new life, and the company of old friends. Festive gifts were chosen as tidings of unity, joy, and good health.

Many of these symbols and gifts were later adopted for religious celebrations, but some of the changes to these Easter traditions just might surprise you! For instance, do you know where the Easter Bunny came from? Come back next week for Easter fun facts!
