About Easter eggs

From the pagan rites celebrating the return of spring to our modern-day Easter festivities, the egg has long been the symbol of the season the world over. The egg has been hard-boiled, colored, and decorated, too.

It is said that the original purpose in coloring eggs was to imitate the brilliantly-hued foliage that came with the first flush of spring. In northern Europe, the eggs were dyed red for Thor, yellow for Eostre, the goddess who lent her name to Easter.

In the early days of the Christian church, eggs were colored red denoting the blood of Christ. Medieval English folk used red, blue and violet dyes. The Persians and the Russians created elaborate works of art out of the hollowed but whole eggshells.

Games and frolicking have long been associated with springtime and egg time. An early English custom of rolling down Greenwich Hill at Easter was abandoned, and eggs were rolled down the hill instead. Interesting, isn’t it, that the rolling of eggs on the green has since become an American White House tradition?

Then, there was a game of tapping eggs — when children tried to break one another’s eggs without cracking their own. And, egg hunts have gone on and on from antiquity.
