So how much time do you have until Easter? Easter Sunday 2021 takes place on 4 April, while the Easter weekend bank holidays – Good Friday and Easter Monday – fall on 2 April and 5 April, respectively.

And we recommend youorder immediately if you’re shopping for Easter eggs online. Not only is time running out, but also because of the increase in online demand due to lockdown, chocolate Easter egg favourites like Cadbury or Thorntons or gourmet and speciality eggs are selling out.

When should you eat Easter eggs?

Well, for many of us with little self-control when it comes to chocolate, the day to eat Easter eggs is the day you bring them home! But chocolate-loving impulses aside, the most common days to tuck into your Easter treats are Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Easter Sunday is the most popular day, as that’s when children enjoy the traditional Easter egg hunt, a fun highlight of the weekend.
