Have You Hidden Your Eggs Yet?


Why do we hide eggs at Easter?

According to Ask.com, “Easter started as a Pagan holiday. The egg is a Pagan symbol for new life and fertility and was a part of their celebration of spring, known as Imbolc. After early Christian influence, some Pagans hid their eggs to avoid persecution. Some also believe that eggs were hidden because they were a forbidden food during Lent, and were found to signify the end of the Lenten period.”

So, now you know.

Have a great, safe Easter Holiday and take some time to remember the real meaning of Easter.

See you Monday.
