It's all too obvious when Easter is approaching when stores begin lining their shelves with the typical trappings of the holiday: fluffy bunnies, plastic eggs, egg coloring kits, and row after row of chocolate treats resembling chicks, eggs and rabbits. Most of us equate Easter with big baskets brimming with these colorful sweets and, of course, hardboiled decorated eggs, however, this tradition is relatively recent compared to the true origins of the Easter egg. The egg has long been a symbol of continuing life and resurrection among many religions and sects. As far back as the Middle Ages, eggs were colored for Easter celebrations.
