Easter Eggs: To Eat or Not to Eat?

Update:09 Oct 2021

An Easter egg hunt is an activity, idea, or symbol hidden in a computer game, a movie, video game, or any other, usually digital, medium. Easter eggs are small Easter treats, typically made of chocolate or other sugary materials that are given out at Easter during the Springtime celebrations. They can also be collected throughout the year as a symbol of the season. The eggs can be hidden in many places, but the most popular places tend to be in games, computer games, and even online.


Many young children enjoy the day with their family visiting the different Easter eggs or attending the Easter parade in Poland. It is fun for them to go to the different places and search for easter eggs. This is not always easy, since there is so much to see and do! Many adults take a look at the Easter eggs hidden in computer games and enjoy them too, but they are not able to find them. However, for those of us who have been blessed with a child born on Easter, we know how special Easter eggs are!


In Poland, Easter traditions are very similar to those of the USA and Great Britain. Children gather together on Easter Sunday to celebrate the miracle of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. A number of traditions are involved including egg hunting, which is not limited to only one country. In fact, some countries hold international egg hunts, where eggs are hidden and found in other countries. This is why the US has its own Easter Egg Roll and UK has theirs, as well as several variations of the European tradition.

On Easter Sunday, eggs are decorated by adults and children alike, and many people throw egg parties for the entire family. These parties can sometimes get quite large, depending on the number of guests. Traditionally, children bring an egg or two home to their parents, with the "egg" being crushed to show that it has been used in the Easter ritual. This tradition dates back centuries and can be traced as far as the 11th century.


For those Christians who do not celebrate Easter as a Christian festival, there is another more secular meaning to eggs. Many people who identify as being of the " pagan" religious persuasion like to eat eggs, particularly due to their association with Easter. In fact, in some parts of the world, eggs are considered bad luck, as the luck of finding them is said to be based entirely on luck. Eggs are also thought to symbolize fertility and new life. Many Christians do not like to eat eggs because of their association with Easter, so they will avoid any eggs at all during Easter celebrations.


There are many varieties of Easter eggs, which are available for consumers to purchase. Pace eggs, for example, are a type of Easter egg that have a short, plastic string attached to the bottom of the yolk. These eggs are usually adorned with shiny feathers, flowers, and other decorations, and they are placed by the Easter Bunny. Children love these eggs, and they make great gifts for children, but they can also be used in celebrations of other occasions.
