Easter in Hong Kong

 

In the past

I never quite like Easter because it is not special for me when I was a child.  In fact, it was a great pain to me because I went to a Christian primary school despite I don't come from a Christian family.  Every year during Lent, the donation box from school causes lots of stress for me coz I don't have much money to donate in class nor any generous friends and relatives to contribute to my box when I take it home.  Teacher praises other children for doing well but then there is nothing they can say about my humble contribution.  I don't get any Easter Eggs either so Easter is just school holiday with homework and no fun.

Nowadays

Nowadays, however, Easter is much more widely celebrated.  The donation boxes still go on at schools but fabulous decorations and activities are also arranged in many shopping arcades. 

5 star hotels launch Easter buffet with bunny shows, egg hunt and egg paintings.

Ocean Park probably runs egg hunts and crafty corners for kids plus Easter decorations.

Note to travellers:

All shops remain open except all banks, post office and government departments will be closed. 

Certain museums, theme parks and attractions' opening hours will be different due to public holidays.
