Sundae Scroll #8: Easter Eggs (and 5 ways to decorate them)

Quick trivia: Have you ever wondered why eggs are used as the symbol for Easter?

It is said that the word Easter originated from the word Eastre/Eostre, celebrated as the goddess of spring by the Saxons of Northern Europe. A festival called Eastre was held during the spring equinox in honor of her, and the name for the celebration of the sunrise and the change of seasons has been adapted by Christians to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and a new era. [1]
