The egg in the Christian East represents Christ's Resurrection. St Augustine first suggested the egg as a symbol of Pascha (Easter) - as a "chick bursts from the egg - Christ brusted from the tomb. In the East tradition each person is presented with a "red" egg with the greeting "Christ Is Risen!" at the end of the Paschal Liturgy.This
is perfect way for you to celebrate Pascha (Easter) in a Christian way
or to give to that someone special or as a hostess gift.
