Easter and Chocolate


Easter and Chocolate

Japan has adopted many Western events (Christmas, Valentine's, Halloween etc.), but Easter is still unfamiliar to most Japanese and I too didn't know much about Easter. Easter egg hunting seems to be fun for kids. I noticed that the treats kids get in North America are mainly chocolates. I am not sure if chocolate is as popular for Japanese kids. Maybe it is another culture difference. I know there are many chocoholics out there, but I will choose Japanese sweets over chocolates.
