Eggs are a long symbol for Christians at Easter, and for good reason! The outside resembles the rock of a tomb, and then new life springs forth as a baby bird! But did you know why we decorate eggs at Easter time?
It is said that Mary Magdalene met with Tiberius Caesar after Jesus’ resurrection, and she was carrying an egg. She proclaimed to him “Christ has Risen!” He scoffed at her and told her that was as unlikely as the egg in her hand turning red. Then a miracle happened- the egg immediately turned red right there in her hand!
So as you’re dying eggs and having Easter egg hunts this year, remember where this great tradition started. Make Easter about the Lamb, not the bunny! :-)
