The practice of decorating eggs dates back to ancient civilizations, who celebrated the arrival of spring as a time of rebirth and renewal. Eggs, as a symbol of new life, were often painted or decorated to mark the occasion. In some cultures, eggs were believed to have magical powers and were used in rituals to promote fertility and protect against evil spirits.
Over the centuries, the practice became more refined and by the Middle Ages, European parents were not only dying eggs but hiding them for children to find as a way of commemorating the end of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting and abstinence leading up to Easter. The eggs were usually hard-boiled and painted in bright colors, and the game of searching for them became a popular Easter pastime.
