Why Do We Eat Easter Eggs


Answers why do people eat chocolate Easter eggs and decorate or paint them to symbolise many things


Easter Eggs Eggs have been a symbol of new life, renewal, new beginnings and fertility since before Christianity.

The hollow shell represents the empty tomb of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion.

They were associated with Spring.

Christians adopted it as a symbol when Jesus Christ died for our sins and was crucified and was resurrected from the dead on what is now Easter Sunday.

Easter Eggs ChicksIt was traditionally forbidden to eat eggs during the fasting period of Lent. This is why we celebrate Pancake Day which uses them up in the household prior to Lent. Easter Sunday marks the end of Lent and being able to eat eggs again.

This time is a popular period to be baptised because it symbolises a new life committed to God.


Easter Egg Gifts of eggs became a Christian festival. In early days real ones would be decorated and painted. In modern times this still exists, though most children and many adults like to receive and eat chocolate Easter eggs. Popular ones are those made by Cadbury's and Rowntrees such as Dairy Milk, Yorkie or Crunchie. Many come with free gifts such as egg cups, spoons and mugs.
