The custom of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life.
Easter is now celebrated (in the words of the Book of Common Prayer) on the first Sunday after the full moon which happens on or after March 21, the Spring Equinox.
In the United States Easter is celebrated with a large Easter Egg Hunt by children on the White House Lawn.
To all of you, I'd like to wish a very blessed and joyful Easter, full of chocolate (but the dark one because its antioxidant chemicals).
