Lipa City – Many cherished Easter traditions highlight the Christian celebration of Christ’s resurrection, as well as the coming of spring.

Easter eggs and chicks symbolize new life.  Eggs have been a symbol of spring since ancient times, and are also symbols of the rock tomb out of which Christ emerged when He rose again. The chick hatching out of the egg symbolizes new life or rebirth.

In ancient times, the rabbit was a symbol of abundant new life. It is said that the Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with European settlers in Pennsylvania who brought with them their tradition of an egg laying hare called “Osterhase.”

Later on, the tradition spread across America and started to include chocolates, candies, gifts and decorated baskets many in egg, chick, and bunny shapes. Today, many families around the world celebrate Easter with Sunday Mass and lots of sweet treats for kids, including fun egg hunts.

At SM, Toy Kingdom and Snack Exchange have eggs-traordinary and amazing toys and treats, gifts, and surprises for kids of all ages.
