Trois Petits Lapins

Au clair de la lune
Trois petits lapins
Qui mangeaient des prunes
Comme des petits coquins
La pipe à la bouche
Le verre à la main
En disant Mesdames
Versez-moi du vin
Tout plein jusqu’à demain matin.

I am happy that some of the French traditions are the same; since
childhood, Easter Sunday has always meant ‘chocolate’. I even found
my favourite Lindt rabbits here, which reminded me of a song,
lingering somewhere in the recesses of my memory – we learnt it at
school in New Zealand. Today is the Easter egg hunt for children
– which can include an assortment of chocolate novelties like rabbits,
hens, bells (cloches de Pâques – flying bells that drop aggs) and schools
of tiny fish (fritures de Pâques). There were four bunnies, but one
didn’t make it to Easter…
