Easter eggs are decorated eggs that are often given to celebrate Easter. The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery.
Eggs, in general, were a traditional symbol of fertility, and rebirth.In Christianity, for the celebration of Eastertide, Easter eggs symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus though an egg appears to be like the stone of the tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians,is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
