Good Friday ( le vendredi saint) is not a bank holiday in France. On Easter Sunday ( le dimanche de Pâques) Easter eggs ( les œufs de Pâques) get dropped in the gardens or on balconies by the bells ( les cloches) on their way to Rome where they will ring for the Easter mass! No Easter bunny!
After the Easter weekend children go back to school. They will be on holiday for les vacances de printemps from next week onwards.
