Happy Easter to all!!!

April 4, 2010

According to history, Easter is the most important and festive day in the Christian calendar year as it celebrates Christ’s resurrection three days after his Crucifixion. Having this as a fact, I just wonder how Easter Sundays were celebrated thousands of years ago.

When I was still in my younger years, Mom would normally organize a small private Easter party just for the kids in our family. We would always get so very busy every Black Saturday decorating eggs which will be later on used for the most famous Easter Egg Hunting. Those nicely painted eggs were normally hid in unexpected places inside our house. My cousins and I were given decorated baskets where we would put all those precious Easter eggs that we found. And one with the most number of eggs gets the grand prize. Being one of the youngest among the cousins, my basket would normally end up empty. So, I would just run to my room, cry my heart out and feel pity for myself. My older cousins would then give me one egg each… making me the one with the most number of eggs. Well, Mom never gave me the prize because that’s not the rule of her game. But hey, at least I’ve got some Easter eggs in my basket. LOL. Come to think of it, I was really a spoiled little brat… but in a very subtle way. Hahaha!

But hey, have you ever thought why Christ’s Resurrection or the so-called Easter Sunday is celebrated with eggs? Well, I tried to stoke my keys and googled my way to seek for answers. And here’s the most believable explanation I’ve found:

Eggs have always been associated with the Easter celebration. Nearly every culture in the modern world has a long tradition of coloring eggs in beautiful and different ways.

The origin of the Easter egg is based on the fertility lore of the Indo-European races…The egg to them was a symbol of spring…In Christian times the egg had bestowed upon it a religious interpretation, becoming a symbol of the rock tomb out of which Christ emerged to the new life of His resurrection.

The True Origin of Easter

Before I went for long vacation, I received an early Happy Easter email from one of my colleagues. I was expecting to see those usual holiday greetings with typical-looking Easter eggs like these:

But I was wrong!!! Because these are what I saw:

Some eggs, eh? Well, at least now we know how-slash-what eggs feel when we try to make them into Easter eggs… or just plain breakfast. LOL.

Happy Easter to all!!!
