The return of green grass, blue sky, and yellow and purple flowers is a reminder of life renewed. The change of seasons to spring and the Easter holiday have always been some of my favorites.
As I child I looked forward to Easter as it was a day filled with hope, hope on a few levels. On a simple level, I hoped for a chocolate bunny and Easter candy. Somehow chocolate made the day and time of year that much brighter. As we celebrated the changing of the seasons and life renewed, I was aware that it was somehow more colorful and refreshing with chocolate.
On a deeper level, I felt hope of a new year. It seemed the change of the seasons from winter to spring was more like a new year than a date on a calendar. I was set free in a way to run and play in sunshine.
Easter has also always been, and still is, a time of contemplation and a search for meaning to life. This year I feel that we as a world have been in a long winter and just maybe are entering into a spring of hope and happiness. I feel what the world needs now, more than ever, is love.
Chocolove exists today for many reasons. The love of chocolate born out of the joy of chocolate in the spring and the search for deeper meaning and purpose in life many years ago are still present today in Chocolove. Happy Easter from Chocolove, please share it with someone you love.
