Why do we hunt eggs at Easter time?

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

One of the reasons that eggs are associated with Easter is because they conjure images of revival, renewal and rebirth. Historically, eggs were forbidden by Christians in the days leading up to Easter and so they became a treat when they were finally allowed on Easter day. So why do we hold Easter egg hunts? There are many explanations from all different cultures behind this but one of the reasons that spans across cultures is the belief that finding eggs brings good luck. Apparently, decorating Easter eggs is also an age-old tradition that people have been doing for thousands of years. The first chocolate Easter eggs were made in 19th Century France and  Germany.

So, now that you know a brief history of the Easter egg, you’d better get decorating/hiding/eating yours! We also have some EGG-cellent Easter ecards on the Katie’s Cards website.

Hi all,

We are in the process of taking some photographs of the Katies Cards team, the office and Plum so that you can get a better picture of what its like in the office where we create our ecards. I really want you to feel like you know us as you put a lot of trust in us to create heartfelt e-cards for your loved ones that are the perfect for the occasion and the person.

I am planning to finish the photo’s this week so look out for them. In the mean time, I thought you would enjoy some snaps I took recently whilst we were away in Cornwall with the kids. These beautiful scenes are a real inspiration to me, I hope you enjoy them.
