Why do we color Easter eggs?

Easter Bunny

Since ancient times, eggs have been the symbol of the new life that returns to nature about Easter time.  We color Easter eggs and give them to our friends as a way of saying “spring is here.”

On Easter Sunday, children in many places hunt colorful Easter eggs.

They are often told that the Easter eggs were brought and hidden by the Easter bunny.  This charming custom may have come from an old German folk tale.

But since ancient times, eggs have been used to stand for the new life that returns to nature about Easter time.  People would often dye eggs in spring colors and give them to their friends as gifts to celebrate the arrival of spring.

To many people, Easter still means the coming of spring, when the earth, too, “springs”  back to life with flowers and warm sunshine after a cold winter’s sleep.  We color Easter eggs and give them to our friends as a way of saying “spring is here!”

On Easter Sunday, Christians everywhere celebrate the resurrection of Christ.  Many people dress up in new spring clothes and go to church on this day. – Dick Rogers
