Sunday, April 4th is Easter – a day when Christians commemorate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Easter eggs are usually used as gifts on the occasion of Easter. Now Lucknow has curated a list of places from where you can get Easter eggs.
Traditionally, Easter eggs were dyed and painted chicken eggs, but nowadays, that is substituted with chocolate eggs or sugar eggs, filled with candies and toffees. Now Lucknow has rounded up places for both kinds of Easter eggs. Take your pick:
