    It's a pagan ritual Reg. The egg symbol is all about rebirth and it coincides with spring. Christianity nicked it and replaced it with their Passion/Crucifixion/Resurrection doodah. Most major Christian festivals were slapped on top of older pagan festivals...made it easier for the plebs (us) to accept Christianity.

    Jesus out of an egg,



    Trust you to make a yoke of it.

    You ask a serious question and all you get is egg on your face.
