As well as chocolate eggs you will also find chocolate fish and bells in the shops. No church bells ring in France from the Thursday before Good Friday till Easter morning as Catholic tradition says that all the church bells in France fly off to the Vatican on Good Friday taking with them all the misery and grief of those who mourn the crucifixion. The bells then return on Easter morning supposedly bringing with the chocolate & eggs (les oeufs de Paques). Traditionally Easter egg hunts start when the church bells ring on Easter morning.
