Easter in the UK and the Netherlands are fairly similar. We all eat too much chocolate and paint eggs, but I did notice that they prefer branded chocolate here. You can buy chocolate eggs in a KitKat, Smarties or Maltesers box, but it's also possible to buy an egg which represents your favourite artist or cartoon character (Hello Kitty or One Direction, for example). Now you might think that these eggs are filled with mini KitKats or chocolate Harry Styles', but that's obviously too much work for Nestlé and Cadbury. Instead, you get a hollow - I repeat, hollow! - egg with a chocolate bar next to it. What a deception (I still buy it though.... chocolate = chocolate)!
Another English/American specialty is the Cadbury Creme Egg. Apparently Easter isn't complete without eating a Creme Egg, so my housemate convinced me to buy a box.
When removing the foil wrapping, you are again presented with a plain chocolate shell. This one is however filled with sweet white and yellow goo (well, it's fondant actually). It's tasty, but a little too sweet to my liking.
For my Dutch friends who asked about Easter and Summer Time - yes, we celebrate Tweede Paasdag (Second Easter Day) here but it's called Easter Monday. This weekend we also put the clocks forward one hour, so we're still one hour behind the rest of Europe!
