From stunning Faberge creations to pop culture-inspired easter egg designs, Christ’s Resurrection is truly a visual feast like no other. But just like what happens during Christmas, people around the world seem to forget what Easter Sunday is all about. In fact, we somehow fail to remember that easter eggs are actually pagan in nature.
So what gives?
Perhaps we have gotten lost in the colorful festivities to the point that we neglect the essence of Christ’s gift to us. The gift of Life that is way beyond any chocolate bunny or impressive easter egg designs could offer. So before you indulge in the sweet goodness of Easter Egg hunt, may you bow down your head first and thank the Lord for everything He has done.
And for some of you who couldn’t make it to the celebration, feel free to feast your eyes on some of the most artistic Easter Egg designs listed below. The custom of painting easter eggs—traditionally known as “Pysanka”— has its roots in an old, 13th century pagan tradition of commemorating Eostra, the German goddess of fertility. Over the years, Christians have adopted the tradition to symbolize Christ’s raising from the dead. The rest, as they say, is history as colorful as these easter egg pictures:
