For many individuals, Easter conjures up images of springtime gladness. Although it is a Christian holiday, it has pagan origins. It is now so deeply embedded in our society that it is meaningful to individuals of many faiths. It’s simple to enjoy the occasion because of the pastel decorations, scrumptious sweets, and time-honored rituals. It’s easier than ever to re-imagine Easter so that it’s all about doing good, having meaningful festivities, and eating ethically.

Tip #1: Instead of an old-fashioned egg hunt, plan an innovative search game.

Replace the traditional Easter egg hunt with various search games, then set up different prize goals so that everyone has a chance to win something. You could, for example, create a basic photo game. Make a list of things that searchers should look for and photograph in your backyard. The searchers should receive one point for each photograph they take from the list, and you may offer vegan incentives after the hunt.

If you prefer an Easter egg hunt, you may veganize it and still have a good time. Filling reusable eggs with little packs of sweets is an option. Alternately, have the kids paint and dye clay Easter eggs like eggnots before going on a hunt for them.

Tip #2 Fill Easter baskets with a selection of treats

It used to be difficult to locate fun vegan sweets that could compete with store-bought holiday designs, but today the challenge is deciding which tasty goodies to buy. Chocolate lollipops, chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs, and chocolate bunnies are just a few of the vegan Easter treats made by Sjaak’s. One of my favorite things about Sjaak’s is that they manufacture non-dairy vegan’milk’ chocolate (dubbed melk) that will satisfy the taste buds of those like me who grew up on Reese’s peanut butter cup eggs.

Lagusta’s Luscious is a gourmet chocolate shop that sells vegan English cream eggs as an upscale alternative to Cadbury eggs. Moo Free, a Vegan Trademark holder, has a variety of Easter treats. Rose City Vegan Chocolatier, Amanda’s Own Confections, Rescue Chocolate, Divvies, No Whey, Mama Ganache, and Premium Chocolatiers are among the vegan-friendly Easter chocolate makers.

Tip #3: At Easter celebrations, bring vegan alternatives to traditional foods.

Let’s be honest. Some Easter customs are plain obnoxious. Vegans find the idea of murdering and eating a beautiful, innocent lamb frolicking in a spring meadow disgusting, and casual enthusiasm for eating such baby creatures can be difficult to overcome. You don’t have to go to a gathering of omnivore friends and family members without having scrumptious alternatives to animal-based cuisine on hand.
