The Tradition of Easter Egg

Egg

 

 

 

 

The egg is nature’s perfect package. It has, during the span of the celebration of its special symbolism. Before the egg became closely entwined with the Christian Easter, it was honoured during many rite-of-Spring festivals. The Romans, Gauls, Chinese, Egyptians and Persians all cherished the egg as a symbol of the universe. From ancient times eggs were dyed, exchanged and shown reverence.

With the advent of Christianity the symbolism of the egg changed to represent, not nature’s rebirth, but the rebirth of man.   Christians embraced the egg symbol and likened it to the tomb from which Christ rose.

A Polish legend tells of when Mary Magdalen went to the sepulchre to anoint the body of Jesus. She had with her a basket of eggs to serve as a repast. When she arrived at the sepulchre and uncovered the eggs, lo, the pure white shells had miraculously taken on a rainbow of colors.

Decorating and coloring eggs for Easter was the custom in England during the middle ages. The household accounts of Edward I, for the year 1290, recorded an expenditure of eighteen pence for four hundred and fifty eggs to be gold-leafed and colored for Easter gifts.

Although the omens and the mystery of the egg have disappeared today, the symbolism remains, and artists continue in the old world tradition of adorning eggs.
