The egg was a traditional symbol of spring to stand for the earth’s rebirth. It also represented new life and resurrection, and was therefore used by early Christians as the symbol of Jesus as the risen Christ. This is the basic story behind the tradition of Easter eggs.
As we take a break for the Holy Triduum, we’ll leave you with these charming Easter egg projects which you might want to try.

Green Guide and I will be off to Sagada, Mountain Province tonight to spend a quiet four-day spiritual trip with nature. Have a meaningful Holy week and a blessed Easter!
