What’s with eggs at Easter?!
If you’re looking to add a bit of symbolism and reverence to your Easter remembrance this year try a new take on eggs with handcarved Easter Eggs...
If you’ve got kids at the house (or curious friends that are kids at heart) I’m sure you've fielded a few questions about why we see so many eggs around for Easter. Strange, right? Comedian Jim Gaffigan has a great little skit on holidays in general, Easter included right here. “Now Easter, there’s a weird tradition… Easter – the day Jesus rose from the dead, what should we do? HOW ‘BOUT EGGS! Well what does that have to do with Jesus? ALRIGHT, WE’LL HIDE’EM. I don’t follow your logic… DON’T WORRY – THERE’S A BUNNY!”
For anyone who wants to be well-equipped to more accurately explain historical context and the symbolism of Easter eggs to kids, family, or those curious friends, check out Wikipedia's entry right here. Funny, the entry even makes mention of hand-carved wooden eggs…wonder how that got there? :)
As you look ahead to Easter celebrations, if you’re looking to add a bit of symbolism and reverence to your Easter this year, give our handcarved olive wood eggs a try.
