Why Do We Have Easter Eggs?

Whilst the chocolate Easter egg is a relatively new tradition the origin of the Easter egg, and many more modern-day Easter symbols, such as the Easter bunny, goes back a very long way and pre-date Christianity. The historical intermingling of pagan, Christian and Jewish beliefs and practices has left its legacy in many of the things we maybe take for granted about Easter and its traditions today.

Eggs are a potent symbol of life, renewal and rebirth dating back millennia.
