The wait is over – the Easter eggs are completed and ready for homes!  This was such a fun project to give a try and I am happy with the results.  I will say, it was a LOT of work and more than I had expected when I began making them.  It took me a little over two hours to finish the eggs on my diamond grinder to get the bottoms nice and smooth, but it was worth it in the end.

I did some reading on the origins of the Easter egg.  What I found wasn’t particularly profound, but rather just made sense to me.  The Easter egg stems from the Catholic church.  During lent, many people would give up eggs (I am not sure if this is still accurate today or when this exactly began).  Easter Sunday, when the resurrection of Christ is celebrated, eggs were brought back to the table signifying the end of lent and a day of new birth – much like the life of Christ after his death on the cross.  Eggs were often died/colored and decorated as part of the celebration. It was particularly special for the children of the house hold to find the eggs throughout the house – I guess that was the first Easter egg hunt! There are lots of articles online about the Easter egg.  Check them out!
