Easter is fast approaching. It’s time to look past the commercial aspect of the season and think about the real reason for Easter and the sacrifices made. It’s time to think about new life.
Easter eggs represent new life and also symbolise the tomb in which Christ’s body was placed. Over the years Easter eggs have developed from painted bird’s eggs to chocolate eggs – and they’re everywhere! Easter eggs have been on the shelves of supermarkets since the beginning of the year. It seems as though it’s a little earlier every year, but I’d like to think that the normal savvy shopper can look past this consumerism and pause to think about the real meaning.
