Every year, people are looking forward to their Holy Week vacation because it gives them a time to travel away from home and unwind from their usual everyday routine. Looking from another perspective who chose to save up and just stay at home, Easter Sunday's Easter egg hunting events would be the next exciting activity to look forward to, especially to those kids and kids at heart.
According to Wikipedia, Easter is a Christian festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary. It's the culmination of the Passion of Christ, preceded by Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer and penance. It is associated with an Easter Egg because it symbolizes the empty tomb of Jesus where He rose from the grave just like bird is hatched from an egg, a symbol of fertility and rebirth. While an Easter Bunny is depicted as a rabbit that brings Easter eggs and gifts to children. With this came the Easter egg hunt, a game during which decorated eggs filled with or made from chocolates are hidden in various places for children to find.
When I was a kid I didn't experience joining in Easter egg hunting activities that's why now that I'm finally a mom, I have an excuse to experience and enjoy the event with my little one. Due to my excitement, I have compiled and shortlisted some places where Easter Egg Hunting events will be held which we are considering to join. Of course it depends on the joining fee, the proximity of the venue, the type of activity, and the crowd. Let's take a look at my few selections. Where do you think will The Binondo Mommy go for an Easter Egg Hunting experience?

Hmmm, Lucky Chinatown Mall's event seems interesting but upon checking the age limitation, unfortunately my little one is still not eligible to join any of them because she's still below 2 years old. Huhu! Rockwell's event didn't indicate the age limit. I guess we'll try this one out. Good thing, it's in the afternoon. We'll try to head over there after our Easter family lunch gathering.
Mommies, would you mind sharing with me your Easter Sunday plans? Which event will you be going with your kiddos? Do you prefer hotel's Easter events? I just find it too pricey. Hopefully next time we can have it there. Anyway, have a Happy Easter to everyone!
May the Easter celebration remind us that Jesus rose from the dead and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
