Here’s a little reminder of why we traditionally eat Easter eggs
Eggs are a potent symbol of life, renewal and rebirth dating back millennia. The egg was adopted by early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter. The hard shell of the egg represents the tomb and the emerging chick represents Jesus’s resurrection. The tradition of eating eggs on Easter is tied to Lent, the six-week period before Easter. During lent Christians traditionally abstained from all animal products, including meat, dairy and eggs.
Since chickens continue to lay eggs throughout Lent, people would hard boil the eggs, decorate them and save them for Easter. The modern tradition of eating chocolate eggs at Easter is a fun, kid-friendly twist on this ancient religious ritual, which originated in Europe during the early-19th century.
Of course you might just eat them because they taste yummy too!
Our prize will include chocolate eggs worth £75. But be quick – you must enter before the closing time of Monday 22nd march at 3pm!
