The custom of decorating Easter eggs is very widespread, so much so that the Christian meaning has been all but forgotten.

DIRECTIONS

Of course, these Easter eggs are symbols of the Risen Christ. As a chick breaks the shell when it is hatched and begins life, so Our Lord comes forth living from the tomb. Consequently, it is a good custom to paint figures of Christ, the Easter Lamb, etc. on the colored eggs. Many of the other symbols which the Church uses in her liturgy may be used also.
