Yes, people, it’s Easter!
Spring has well and truly sprung (not precisely), and lovely folks everywhere are planning what to do with their Easter break. Most people that celebrate Easter perceive that it’s a Christian celebration of Jesus Christ’s rising.
But, not many of us know where rituals like Easter eggs, cute little bunnies, or baby chicks managed to come from.
Easter comes in the spring which is the yearly time of renewal of the planet. Spring is when our Earth renews itself after the long cold and harsh winter.
The word Easter originates from the name of the Pagan goddess Eostre. Eostre was the goddess of the sun, the season of growing and new birth.
The Easter hare we know and love today originally was a symbol of fertility before. Rabbits are recognized for their rapid reproduction habits, thus making them a figure of new births and pregnancy.
Now, you must be wondering then where did the Easter egg tradition come from? Oh, this is going to be fun to tell you...
In old times, the Egyptians, Persians, Phoenicians, and Hindus all believed that the world began with a gigantic egg. Because of this opinion, the egg became known as a representation of new life.
Long cold winters often left souls with less food and having fresh eggs for Easter were quite a treat. Later, when the culture of lent came about, Christians would refrain from eating meat during the season before Easter.
Hence, Easter became the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after prolonged fasting.
Colouring and painting Easter eggs for Easter is a tradition that dates back to the 13th century. Since eggs were a forbidden food during lent, people would instead paint and decorate them to mark the end of the period of repentance and fasting, then eat them on Easter as a celebration.
Thus, painting Easter eggs continue to be a fabulous part of Easter for those of us that celebrate. Decorating the eggs in beautiful colours and designs; sharing them with our families has its enjoyment!
