The custom of giving eggs at Easter celebrates new life. Christians remember that Jesus, after dying on the cross, rose from the dead. This miracle showed that life could win over death.
For Christians, the egg is a symbol of Jesus' resurrection, as when they are cracked open they stand for the empty tomb. Eggs were sometimes dyed red to symbolise the red blood of Christ caused by crucifixion. Eggs were always thought to be special because although they do not seem alive, they have life within them especially at springtime when chicks hatch out.
Long ago people gave gifts of eggs carved from wood or precious stones. The first sweet eggs that were eaten were made in the last 100 years from sugar or marzipan. Since then chocolate eggs have become popular and these are given on Easter Sunday.
In Christian countries like England, parents tell their children the Easter Bunny has hidden chocolate eggs and they race to find them round the house or garden. Children in other countries decorate hard-boiled eggs at Easter time by painting or dyeing them.
In some countries such as the United States egg rolling is a popular Easter game. This is usually done with coloured eggs. One of the most well-known events is held in America on the White House lawn. Children and parents push the eggs along through the grass with wooden spoons.
Today people don’t just send chocolate Easter eggs, they send Easter hampers and other Easter gifts of all shapes and sizes. How can you deliver yourself if family and friends are many miles away? Parcels are easy to send but rather difficult to receive. What is the alternative If you go out to work or do not want to wait in at home, all day?
