What's different about this Egg?
Happy Easter Egg 2020 is definitely going ahead, but please note the following:
- As a food production facility, the chocolate factory operates to the highest Health & Safety standards, with no plans to cease production.
- To facilitate social distancing, no signature will be required on delivery to you.
- If by any chance I fall ill, a ChristianBooks.IE volunteer will despatch your order.
- Eggs are packed within individual packaging into outer boxes of 10 Eggs, which may have been handled en route by a few people. You could open these outer boxes using rubber gloves, then with freshly washed hands distribute the Eggs, which were packed into their individual boxes in hygienic conditions.
- If at all possible please pay by card or bank transfer, rather than by cheque.
- The order and payment deadline of 5pm Wed 18 March remains unchanged.
“If you landed here as Easter approaches, what would you think Easter is about? Chocolate, bunny rabbits, cute little chickens? Is that all? I believe there’s more. That’s why I’ve made this egg that reminds us why we celebrate Easter – because Jesus is alive again!”

How to order
What churches and groups have found works best:
- Designate one person to take orders in your Church (or with friends, family, neighbours or colleagues). Print out and give them the Sign Up Sheet.
- Print and display the Poster with their name written onto it. Promote the Eggs in your Announcements.
- Place your first order once you reach 20 Eggs – the sooner the better.
- You can then place further orders in multiples of 10 Eggs, up to our our final order deadline of 5pm Wednesday 18 March 2020.
- We will amalgamate all your orders together and send them out in time for Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter.
Each Happy Easter Egg costs just € 8.00 / £ 6.50, including free delivery for orders of 20 Eggs or more to any Church (or group) on the island of Ireland. We will deliver any number over 20 free, once it’s a multiple of 10 Eggs. Please click here for other delivery details.
We cannot guarantee supply for orders placed after our final order deadline of 5pm Wednesday 18 March 2020.
