Celebrate all things chocolate

As the heat and humidity has finally left us and the scent of hot cross buns fills the air, it can only mean one thing: Easter is upon us! In true Aussie fashion, this holiday isn't just about chocolate eggs and bunny ears—it's also a time to take a break from work, kick back, soak up the sunshine, and revel in the beauty of our great outdoors … or watch football.

The history of Easter is as rich and varied as the places we travel to over this long weekend. Originating from ancient pagan celebrations of springtime renewal and fertility, Easter was later embraced by Christianity. Today, it's a harmonious blend of traditions old and new, and celebrated by Aussies in their own unique ways.

Easter holds a special place in the hearts of bookkeepers. This weekend, along with the Christmas break, is one of the very few times in the year when most of our clients take a break so we can really switch off. It gives us the opportunity to head to the bush or beach and reconnect with nature and with our families. In this fast-paced world, where hustle and bustle often reign supreme, Easter offers a much-needed opportunity to slow down, take a breather, and appreciate the simple joys of life.

As the days grow shorter and the leaves begin to turn, there's something truly magical about stepping outside and feeling the warmth of the autumn sun on your face. Whether you're planning a beachside picnic, firing up the barbie, or simply lazing in the backyard with a cold bevvie in hand, Easter is the perfect excuse to indulge in some well-deserved R&R. Throw in an Easter egg hunt and you’ve got yourself a real party weekend!

Of course, no Easter celebration would be complete without indulging in some sweet treats. From decadent chocolate eggs to fluffy hot cross buns, which have been tempting us in the supermarkets since Boxing Day, there's no shortage of delicious delights to tickle your taste buds this weekend.

So, bid farewell to summer and usher in those long forgotten winter woollies. Let's embrace the spirit of Easter, close up our laptops and eat our weight in chocolate. You know you want to. Happy Easter.

Stay ‘Appy!
