The Easter Egg
Also known as Paschal eggs, easter eggs symbolise the resurrection of Jesus. In Catholic traditions, eggs are commonly decorated using dye or paint.
The tradition may have actually originated from a Lenten tradition that prohibits eating of eggs during the season. During Easter, which is the end of Lenten season, all eggs in the household had to be consumed.
In modern times, Easter egg hunting became a popular game for kids wherein decorated eggs, whether real or artificial, are actually hidden for kids to find. The child who finds the most number of eggs at the end of the game wins the prize.
