Tradition of Easter Eggs
Many would say that Easter is not complete unless Easter Eggs are involved. Some say that the egg is believed to be the symbol of rebirth and fertility. Eggs have new lives in them and the new life appears when the egg hatches. Some children are informed of stories about rabbits laying eggs in grass. Others are told of biblical stories. Roman Christians believe that the egg is the seed of new life, identifying it with the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
