Easter Fun in Southeastern Florida

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Saturday, March 26th, 2016 at 12:11pm.

Easter Egg Hunts are all the rage with the kids this spring season and Southeast Florida does not disappoint.  Easter falls on Sunday, March 26, 2016 and kids are gearing up for the bunny’s arrival.

The word Easter has an interesting history of origin.  To some it is the celebration of spring’s arrival.  To others it is a religious holiday signifying deliverance.  

The Easter egg came to be based on fertility lore.  The egg was a symbol of spring.  The folklore then stuck and the Easter egg came to the United States. The bunny had its origin in folklore too.  The bunny never had religious symbolism.  He was used as a symbol of fertility.

Easter egg hunts are popular games where decorated eggs are hidden in various places for children to find.  Churches and schools in Southeast Florida host many of these family fun events.   Please visit Easter Egg Hunts and Events to find an egg hunt event in your area.

When the egg hunt is over and all the candy or prizes are collected reuse, the plastic eggs the children found and fill them with confetti and glitter.  Let the children have an “egg fight” with the confetti-filled eggs.   It is an enjoyable way to expand on the fun for kids of all ages from young to young at heart!

The Easter parade began in many countries when people would wear their best clothes to religious services on Sunday.  After the service, town’s people would walk around the town and socialize.  The largest Easter parade
