Easter Egg Hunt : a family tradition
But have you considered the history around it-
The word “Easter” is thought to come from the Teutonic goddess of springtime Eostre, who was commonly associated with rabbits thanks to their connection with fertility; early Germanic cultures believed that Eostre and her egg-laying rabbits heralded the beginning of spring.
The egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the earth in pre-Christian celebrations of spring. However, the Easter egg itself was defined by early Christians as an Easter symbol of the resurrection of Jesus: the egg symbol was likened to the tomb from which Christ arose.
No Matter the ancient history its fun – and for us a family tradition.
These Pictures are taken at the Thomasson family farm – my cousin host a large family Crawfish bowl & Easter family party every year. Then we have a family egg hunt with all the kids. This is from years past but we are going om our 14th year & plans are made for this Friday. Lisa
