The Easter Egg

The Easter Egg
Where did the colored Easter eggs come from? The egg is a symbol of new life, rebirth and the celebration of spring. The early Christians describes the egg as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus.

After a long hard winter with small amounts of food, an egg for Easter was quite a treasure. Later, Christians abstained from eating meat during Lent. Easter was the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after the long abstinence.

Chicken egg versus the Chocolate Easter Egg
A large chicken egg is only 80 calories and rich in protein. Check the chocolate eggs below and compare.

Chocolate designed to look like a carrot was a surprise, but the biggest surprise was on the nutrition label
