Easter Egg History
Easter eggs are special eggs that are often given to celebrate Easter or springtime. The egg is a pagan symbol of the rebirth of the Earth in celebrations of spring and was adopted by early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus.
The oldest tradition is to use painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery. These eggs are often hidden, allegedly by the Easter Bunny, for children to find on Easter morning. Otherwise, Easter eggs are generally put in a basket filled with real or artificial straw to resemble a bird's nest.The Presurfer
