Heading into Easter weekend you’re bound to see a lot of egg related things the next few days. Egg hunts, painting eggs, candy eggs, but why are eggs such a big part of Easter?
It goes back to the ancient pagan celebrations around spring time. Eggs are symbols of fertility, new life, and the start of spring. In the Christian religion Easter eggs are symbols which represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and resurrection. Along the same lines of “rebirth”.
Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
