    Sunday for chocolates. But as a kid we used to spend Easter with my Nanna who spoiled us. So on the day of our arrival (usually Friday) there would be an egg or two from the Easter Rooster. The next day it'd be from the Easter Chicken. And finally Easter Rabbit on the Sunday. One year we arrived earlier than usual so even the Easter Elephant made an egg delivery.

    As for Christian days, Friday was the death of Jesus, as there was panicking about whether he'd be dead in time to remove him before the Sabbath (Saturday), hence the discussion about breaking legs to hurry things up. And to rise on the third day would be Monday, except concept of zero wasn't around, so I guess it must be Sunday. Biblical ref says he'd already left by just after sunrise on day after Sabbath, so really spent far less than 2 days dead. The Saturday and Sunday are just regular days like any other week (because public holiday is Monday not Sunday), except for observing whatever festival it is - Passover?

    Hot cross buns on Friday to celebrate the death of Christ

    Eggs, bunnies (symbolising new life) on Sunday to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.

    Oh adding roast lamb on Sunday symbolising that Christ was the sacrificial lamb.

    This year we're doing Passover on Friday (Jewish contingent) and then having an Easter Egg hunt at MIL and FILs on Sunday.

    Easter bunny always came on sunday's when I was a kid.

    We have 2 easters here 1 week apart :/ Orthodox use the moon calender and therefore it changes every year compared to catholic easter.
    Anyway, the egg which is traditionaly a real egg and painted red to symbolize christs blood on the cross and is cracked at midnight, it symbolizes christs rising and new life. This is where the chocolate egg comes from. We crack eggs at midnight mass, so Saturday night. And Sunday you'd gorge on the eggs If you want to be symbolic Sunday would be the day. Friday is the day of mourning, Saturday is a normal day and Sunday Christ rose so is the day we celebrate with eggs!!

    It's Sunday.

    Friday is Hot Cross Bun Day and Sunday is Chocolate Day. Saturday and Monday are the "non-fun," Easter holidays... lol.

    Sunday. Eggs symbolise new life. It was the day that Jesus rose from the dead.

    The egg tradition is much older than Christianity and was appropriated by the church to encourage conversions. Eggs are indeed symbols of new life but were used well before Christ in rites of Spring by pagan and Zoroastrian faiths (probably others also).

    We eat chocolate eggs on the Sunday
