Easter Day is cold but warm in the sun. After Mass, we did egg hunting in the backyard of the church.
The tradition of Easter egg hunts and gifting eggs to children originated in Germany in the 17th century. As a child, Queen Victoria enjoyed egg hunts put on by her German mother, and helped popularize the tradition in Great Britain.
Easter Egg Hunt, which has this tradition, is still loved by children to this day. Except for a few years when I couldn't do an egg hunter due to Pandemic, the newly opened Egg Hunter event without a mask has children picking up colorful plastic eggs on the grass and having fun.
The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been associated with pagan festivals celebrating spring. From a Christian perspective, Easter eggs are said to represent Jesus' emergence from the tomb and resurrection.
It was an impressive day when the priest gave a passionate lecture about coming out of the tomb, removing the huge stone in front of us, and experiencing the joy of resurrection.
