30 Mar Have an Eggciting Easter Weekend
Decorating eggs for Easter is a tradition that dates back to at least the 13th century, according to some sources. One explanation is that eggs were formerly a forbidden food during the Lenten season, so people would paint and decorate them to mark the end of the period of penance and fasting, then eat them on Easter as a celebration.
The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been associated with pagan festivals celebrating spring and rebirth.
Did you know? The largest Easter egg ever made was over 25 feet high and weighed over 8,000 pounds. No, it wasn’t laid by a giant chicken but rather built out of chocolate and marshmallow and supported by an internal steel frame.
