Easter Egg Hunt
#1
I am aware of much of the Religious tradition concerning Easter Eggs, but is there any Religious significance to the Easter Egg Hunt?  I want to be able to relate the Easter Egg Hunt to the Resurrection in some way for my son this year.

I am speculating, but does it have something to do with the Apostles searching for the risen Lord?

Thanks!

Its a game you can say, but the traditions seem to be Christian: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_egg

You should make Resurrection Cookies (scroll down to customs):

It has to be done the night of Holy Saturday.

Easter eggs come from St. Mary Magdalene.

She gets up very early on Easter day and lays them all around the yard.  Because she turned from a life of sin to follow Jesus, the eggs she lays are plastic and full of jelly beans.

What more is there to understand?

I always knew plastic eggs were "whorish."

Searching for the eggs is reminiscent of the quote in Scripture, where Mary Magdalene says:

"And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him." (John 20:13)


Mary Magdalene pretty much owns all the "Easter Egg" traditions apparently.

Oh c'mon! EVERYONE knows the Easter Bunny lays the plastic eggs that are filled with candy and/or coins and then hides them. Sometimes he makes an appearance on TV laying Cadbury Creme Eggs:




I thought this was common knowledge! Good thing I was here to set you guys straight! ;)

And let's all remember.....NOTHING says our Lord and Savior has risen from the dead like a rabbit delivering eggs......
