The Story Of The Easter Egg Of the Easter customs, one of the most symbolic and beautiful is the practice of preparing, giving and eating eggs. While it is a great deal of fun to boil and color the eggs and give them to our friends, the greatest joy comes in under- standing the real meaning of the Easter egg. The idea of the egg as a symbol goes back to the ancientEgyptians and Persians who had the custom of coloring and eating eggs during the spring festivals. One of the earliest known uses of the egg in religion was in connection with the sun god Ra, The idea was that the earth was represented by the shell, the heavens were represented by the whites, and the yellow was Ra himself. The early Christian Church quickly took over the egg as a symbol in the Christian faith. It represented so plainly the resur- rection. The shell is the sealed tomb, having the dormant life of tile Lord Jesus within it. It was to be broken wida the glad cry, "He is risen". And others would break their eggs and cry out, "He is risen, indeed! " Red was the fh'st color used in coloring eggs. This represented the blood of Jesus, shed for the bring- ing of new life to mankind. Light colors, such as ivory, white, or tan represent the fine 'allbearers were Bill and Michael Toney of LaGrange; linens in which Christ's body was. • horter, Birdis Williamson, two brothers, Galin Caldwell of wrapped. ner Barnes, Kenny Anderson, LaGrange and Edward Caidwell pickleslvard Dunn, and Rance Henson. of Fairburn; eight grandchildren; Green represents the fresh veg- aer forlqrs.

Yellow represents the starlight of that first Easter morn, which the -women came early to the tomb, showing their devotion by bring- ing spices with which to anoint his body. Purple represents the passion of the Crucified Christ." Multi-colored eggs represent the time when Jesus gave up his spirit• The many colors of the Easter eggs together tell u s of all the beau- tiful hues of springtime that join together to rejoice that Christ is risen. Breaking the eggs means that Christ has broken the bonds of the tomb, conquering death and giv- ing life to all who believe in Him. Eating the eggs represents our sharing in His life, and the break- ing of the fast that is kept during Lent. 71utrsday, March 25, 1999 - - Hogansville Herald - - A-3 Stamp Show In Duluth On Saturday and Sunday, April ' 10-I 1,the Button-Gwinnelt Stamp Club will host B UTFPEX '99.
