Quarantine requires, we will celebrate Easter differently this year…
Fortunately, several partners from the Pays de Haguenau organize to help us bring the spirit of Easter to the cottages!
#Stay home and read our article: you will find there tips to appreciate ce highlight of the year even at home.
Idea # 1: Equip yourself with chocolate from Haguenau's chocolatiers
Because the first ingredient of a successful Easter is the chocolate...
The haguenovian chocolate factory Daniel Stoffel organize so that "Easter this year is still Easter!" Opening of the shop from Monday to Friday continuously from 9h to 15h, removal "Drive" possible (orders by phone or on the e-shop) ... And for the most distant of you: delivery is offered in all Alsace from 50 € of order!
Go to the website of the Stoffel chocolate factory as well as on their page facebook for know all the details. It is also a way of supporting an involved and united company, which will donate 10% of the value of purchases made in stores to hospitals and Ephad in chocolate.
Other partners (chocolate, pastry, etc.) also offer hopening hours or adapted services during this period: go to the website of the city of Haguenau to know the details. And if for you chocolate can only be tasted with a pretzel coated inside ... la Pretzel factory has also adjusted the opening hours and services of Drive in its shop!
Idea # 2: Organize an egg hunt at home!
With the first weeks of quarantine, a new daily logistics takes place in families...
Break the routine : now that you are equipped with chocolate, organize your Easter egg hunt; at home !
A fun activity that will relax everyone, and that can give rise to all kinds of little ones fun challenges. For example: be the first to find THE Homemade Chocolate Sandhaase ! (Sandhaase: sand bunny in Alsatian and nickname of the haguenoviens…).
And hopefully if you hide well your eggs in every corner of your apartment or house… You may find up to Christmas 😉.
Idea # 3: Bring the Easter spirit home!
You have to do with means of the edge, of course, but with a little imagination nothing prevents us from re-creating the Alsatian traditions of Easter at home ! Why not try to make an imitation easter tree with what's lying in your drawers or by recycling your Christmas decorations ? Or, if you have a baking pan Lamele in Soufflenheim pottery, get started in making this traditional cake? (For the recipe, visit the blog of My weekend in Alsace).
Our colleague Lauriane offers you another idea to say the least original: "With us at Easter, tradition dictates that we make a 'Ostergärtele': A easter garden made of moss and small sticks found in the forest, which are then assembled so that the Easter Bunny deposit the chocolates there… Why not reinvent it by using only things found in his garden or at home : with containment, people became inventive !"

Idea # 4: Between tales and traditions…
The festivities linked to "Sandhaas SpringWere canceled, either.
But the City of Haguenau is replacing a "Sandhaas Spring digital»: A program online activities and publications to entertain the whole family !
Appointment on the site Going out in Haguenau and his page facebook April 4 and 5 so as not to miss anything: especially several Easter tales offered by the Tourist Office and Maddy Jacquot, volunteer guide and storyteller. Ideal to please children and take their imagination on a journey !
Finally, because it is a important tradition in the eyes of many people, note that the Marienthal Basilica plans to allow people who wish to recover twigs once the containment period has ended. These will blessed during the mass of the twigs (not open to the public) then stored until they can be distributed. A good idea which will appeal to those of you who asked us the question!
We hope that these ideas and delicacies will brighten up your homes!
