One thing that people look forward to Easter weekend is giving and receiving Easter eggs. To celebrate the festival, eggs are dyed but initially, eggs were stained red in memory of the blood of Christ. The tradition was started by Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches. Eggs represent a symbol of birth and fertility, both have a strong connection with the Easter story. While the eggshells represent the sealed Tomb of Christ and cracking the shells symbolises rebirth. Though the tradition is of decorating chicken eggs, today they are replaced with chocolate and jellybeans. It is also said that earlier during Lent period eggs along with meat, wine and milk were prohibited. While Easter marks the end of Lent period and also the period when it could be eaten. Hence, they became celebrated at Easter.
