Happy Easter and Easter Dinner Discussion

By
Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE

Easter Eggs: Long considered the symbol of renewal and fertility, the egg’s relationship to the pagan origins of Easter dates back to ancient civilizations. For example, in ancient Egypt, the egg is the symbol of the sun; for the Babylonians, the egg is the embodiment of Ishtar. The practice of dyeing eggs can be traced to the ancient Persians who colored and ate eggs during their spring festival, while Hindus see the structure of the universe in the shape of an egg Ancient Mesopotamians decorated eggs with bright red dye to symbolize the blood of Jesus, while it is posited that the Easter egg is one of the symbols adopted from Judaism’s Passover festival. According to Scientific American Easter eggs are associated with another symbol of resurrection — the Phoenix. She writes that the “phoenix was adopted as a Christian symbol in the first century AD. It appears on funeral stones in early Christian art, churches, religious paintings, and stonework. The egg from which it rose has become our Easter egg.” The pagan tradition of breaking Lent with decorating and then eating eggs is still in practice today. 

Happy Easter!

Hi Dick- I too was unaware of this history. We had 30 over today, including 8 children and one newborn. There are sugar highs that I'm sure the children are coming down from. Hope you had a Happy Easter.
