Aren’t these Easter eggs beautiful? I think that historically these delicacies were not part of Malabar (Kerala) Christian culture. We had never heard of Easter eggs during my childhood. But slowly they made the scene and today Easter celebrations are not complete without them. Well, if Valentine’s Day can be marketed in India, why not Easter eggs.
Easter signifies the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It was the fulfillment of His mission to earth. “I am the resurrection and the life. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.”
What is the significance of Easter eggs? It seems that in many ancient communities egg was a symbol of new life and immortality. So it became an icon of the eternal life offered through resurrection.
I don’t think the Easter bunny has any religious significance.
