Easter is this weekend and during this time we all look forward to warmer weather and blooming flowers, sunny skies and spending time with family and friends. Not to mention bright colors in new fashion. Easter is the kick off to spring and we’re so excited for what’s to come!
Easter eggs have always been hailed as a symbol of life and new beginning in most cultures. They have been buried with royals as a blessing into the afterlife. Easter eggs have been used to symbolize the resurrection of Christ and the Passover Sacrifice. The Easter egg had been also offered as gifts among family and friends.
The offering of Easter eggs as gifts have made coloring eggs a huge part of this holiday. Coloring eggs has become family traditions around the world. Coloring started as a way to adorn eggs with bright colors and religious symbols to be offered as gifts but now it has moved away from this type of coloring to a more modern less religious theme. They now are using all types of mediums to achieve the different color and designs. This has ways proven to be a great way to involve children.
Of course the most popular tradition surrounding Easter is what else? The Easter Basket! On Easter morning there is no greater sight than a brimming basket of shiny plastic eggs (sort of like Christmas but way more pastel). For bonus points ditch those chintzy wicker baskets and use a Caboodle instead! Share your Easter Caboodle creations on Twitter @RealCaboodles & share on Instagram.com/RealCaboodles
