well, a lot of dark chocolate easter eggs may be vegan. The lindt chocolate bunny seems to be vegan in most (all?) countries, and here (UK) I have seen vegan dark chocolate easter eggs by After Eight and ...um...someone else.


For something sweeter, you could try ordering vegan specialty easter eggs online.

or buy those cardboard ones that open and fill them with vegan sweeties.

Or have the eggs around if someone else has bought them and dyed them, but just don't eat them? If you're looking to dye your own, plastic (as suggested) or wooden ones would be a good replacement.

Just asking tho... why use artificial eggs? Why promote the idea that eggs are an appropriate symbol in the first place? dunno if that matters or not... It's kind of along the same lines as people grumbling about fake meat...

When I was drinking, I used to go to an annual easter party where they would fill film canisters with shots and hide them in the woods!!! The rule was that you had to drink everything you found right there... it got messy... I once won a prize for being the first person to throw up....


those were the bad old days....

yeah but...if you think about it, this is not about eating the eggs. The eggs, if you disregard the part where people eat them, are meant to signify rebirth and life and all that jazz, right? So you're meant to be seeing the eggs as 'awww, cute, baby chickens will come out of there' rather than 'yum yum' and it's actually quite an animal-friendly message.


I don't know if that made any sense.

I agree..beyond the Christian symbolism, most likely because of the pagan/druid traditions that were included by the missionaries, Easter has also come to represent the rebirth of spring and all new life.

The sad part is that many, many people take this awesome holiday to purchase baby chickens and bunnies and ducks, which are neglected after one or two weeks and set off in the wild, and if they're lucky they are picked up by the humane society.

That concerns me more than egg-dye-ing.

I am a Sunday school teacher...we may decorate some artificial eggs, but I also plan on celebrating it with my kids by planting some seeds and watching them grow!
