Things you might not know about easter eggs

This weekend I was wondering where the whole tradition of Easter eggs came from….  Do you know?

1. Decorated eggs as much as 60,000 years old have been found in Africa.  As traditions go, most point 3000 B.C in Persia, where eggs dyed red were given as gifts in celebration of the first day of spring. 

2.  The practice of giving Easter eggs – dyed red to symbolize the blood of Christ – developed into a Christian tradition, with the hatching of an egg symbolizing the resurrection.  The Easter egg is also a byproduct of Lent, as many families would give up eggs during those fast days, which ended with Easter.

I hope everyone had a happy Easter weekend!
