Easter Egg Gifts

In ancient cultures eggs were a symbol of spring and re-birth. Bird’s eggs symbolized springtime hope. During spring festivals in early Greek, Persian, and Chinese cultures, eggs were exchanged as gifts and were considered auspicious. Some ancient cultures even had this belief that the world is created from a giant egg. When Christians adapted the festival of Easter celebrating the resurrection of the Christ, they also adapted various pagan symbols such as the egg and the bunny. Thus, Easter egg gifts also became a part of Christian rituals and the Easter egg stood for the tomb of Christ.
