Have you ever wondered why we decorate eggs for Easter? Well, I’m not sure why I’ve never thought about this, but I decided to look into it…
I discovered that it’s a symbol of “New Life”! I’m not sure why I never thought about this before! Growing up in a Christian home, I knew that Easter was about celebrating Christ’s resurrection and just thought of the Easter bunny as the “Santa” of Easter… I never thought about the reason behind the tradition of Easter eggs…
In Christianity, the egg symbolizes the empty tomb of Jesus. The egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb…a bird hatches from it with life! Similarly the Easter egg is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave and that those who believe will experience eternal life.
I hope that this will cause you to look at the time you put into making your eggs beautiful a bit differently!
Do you make beautiful Easter Eggs? Please send me pics of your eggs so I can share them with THL readers! What are your favorite Easter traditions?
As much as I love iced sugar cookies, I’m quiet sure I couldn’t bring myself to eat one of these works of art!
