The Italians say, 'felice come una pasqua' or 'happy as Easter'. I think it may have something to do with this...
It seemed like the whole Easter section filled with every kind of chocolate egg just sprouted overnight. Each of these giant eggs have some kind of 'surprise' inside. They range from silly plastic toys to the fancier silver jewelry. It looked like a huge marketing scam but the Italians were really buying it all up. The day before Easter, it looked like they might run out. Everyone had them in their shopping carts. Made me feel like grabbing a couple more myself. But we already had two at home.
Happy Easter everyone!
