What Do Easter Eggs Symbolize?
Eggs were used as a symbol of new life for centuries before Christians came on the scene, and were quickly adopted as obvious symbols of the resurrection. The egg does look tomb-like, and we watch with awe as new life emerges from it. Decorating eggs and giving them as gifts also goes back to the pre-Christian cultures; the favored color was red. For Christians this was a wonderful color to mark the Passion of Jesus. To this day, many beautifully decorated eggs of Eastern Europe are red. "The gift of an egg is a gift of prayer," we learn from medieval manuscripts. The "prayer" was often the acclamation, "Christ is risen, alleluia!" said when eggs were exchanged and often written on the eggs as well. When coloring eggs, be sure to dye some RED and don't forget the message!
