Easter. That magical time of year where our Christian friends SLAM our Facebook feeds with terms of "He has risen" or "He's still alive!" He, of course being Doctor Who. As for those who just celebrate Easter because it's just one more holiday you get to chow on masses amount of sugar, but with the added bonus of cholesteral in the form of Hard Boiled Eggs, it's just another semi-meaningless holiday, isn't it? I just can't do meaningless. Each holiday has it's reasons and I'd hate to celebrate one when I don't even have enough respect to even research why it's even being celebrated in the first place. So, I'm going to give you all a fantastic reason to fully enjoy this holiday.
Let's go back to pagan roots and really celebrate what Easter is meant to be about; The Spring Equinox. Now, I'm not saying lets all get nekid and dance around bonfires with wreaths of fancy flowers on our heads. That's just a level of freak I'm just not prepared for nor the mental image you need. Especially since most of you readers are parents of young children (my demographic) and may scar your little ones with such practices. Just got a cold chill thinking of that! For those of us who don't want to teach our kids about "The Resurrection of Hesus Cristo", then let's make this a celebration of the end of winter and the welcoming of Spring. Nobody is really all that sure as to why we have a rabbit hiding eggs is relevant to Jesus coming out of a tomb, but it makes a little more sense in terms of the rabbit is bringing new life all over. Eggs just happen to be a good example of bringing life into the world!
With that, here are some photos of great and nerdy inspration on how to decorate your eggs with your children this year for Easter! Feel free to pin these pics on Pinterest for ideas closer to egg decorating time!
