In many cultures around the world the egg is a symbol of new life, which is why eggs are traditionally associated with Easter.
The biblical connection makes sense, but it also makes sense as an owner of backyard chickens.
After the long, cold and dark winter, the temperatures turn and the sun shines longer causing the hens to begin laying eggs once again. Almost as if they are brought back to life by the light of spring.
Throughout the winter, I would be lucky to get an egg or two a day. Now, egg production is back to it’s normal hustle creating an abundance of gorgeous, fresh eggs… just in time for Easter.
I can’t help but wonder if I am not the first to encounter this and that it’s another reason why eggs are associated with Easter.
While gorgeous on their own, it’s also fun to follow another Easter tradition with eggs and dye them to all the different colors of the rainbow. And, to do so, you don’t have to go purchase artificial dyes. In fact, you don’t have to look much further than your veggie crisper, spice cabinet, or even wine stash!
