Easter is right around the corner and that means it’s time for chocolate bunnies, Aunt Mary’s Easter egg bread and of course … decorated Easter eggs. But depending your upbringing and maybe how old you are, Easter eggs can vary greatly.
I actually was curious about what the significance of the egg was to this holiday. After all, bunnies don’t lay eggs, chickens do – unless something changed since I took high school biology. But after checking out a few sources, and like everything in life, there are many stories … the one that seems to be the most common is that the egg represents “new life”. In the eyes of Christianity, it’s a symbol of resurrection.
