The Easter Egg, a must-have for the Feast of Feasts
According to tradition, Saint Mary Magdalene visited the Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar while on her apostolic mission to preach Christ after his Ascension. She boldly proclaimed Jesus' resurrection to him and held out an egg. Mockingly, the emperor replied, "Sooner this egg will turn red than someone rises from the dead." Immediately, the egg in her hand became red, and she exclaimed: "Christ is risen!"
The Easter egg is a ubiquitous attribute of Pascha, a symbol of Jesus' rising from the dead and a new life. Dying Paschal eggs is a long-standing tradition. Dyed hard-boiled eggs are also objects in many popular games played during Easter. One game involves rolling eggs on the floor to knock down the eggs of your opponents. The winner is the egg that makes it to the finish line without breaking. In addition, people hit eggs against each other to break them, and the winner is the one whose egg is broken last. In addition, people hit eggs against each other to break them, and the winner is the one whose egg is broken last.
A souvenir in the form of an egg is also a popular Easter present. Wooden Easter eggs come in many colours, and designs. Painted Easter eggs are highly prized, especially handmade ones. Decorated Easter eggs also come in other materials. The famous diamond-and ruby-studded Faberge eggs now found in museums and private collections are decorated Easter eggs once exchanged as gifts.
