Jews have the custom when they go to visit someone to donate a gift to the host. If the guest was very poor, he must give an egg as a gift. According to Christian tradition, when Mary Magdalene went to Rome to meet the Roman Emperor, following this custom, she gave him an egg, which was dyed red, symbolizing the blood of Christ. Since then started the custom of Christians giving away red-painted Easter eggs . Gradually people started to use other colors as well.

History of the Christian Church

Here's a curious fact about celebrations similar to Easter. Take a look at what Mirko Golbic wrote about the origin of Easter in his book "History of the Christian Church" - quotes: "The Attis mysteries were practiced in Phrygia, about 200 years before Christ. Then this rite was transferred to Rome. During the spring equinox people used to meet around a cut pine tree, the meeting attended was dedicated to the mourning of the death of Attis, who died under a pine tree. The next day accompanied by the sound of cymbals and drums, the followers of Attis celebrated his resurrection. When historians compared Easter with the morning of Attis, they saw several similarities between them - the fasting done before the actual celebration, the vernal equinox, the death and resurrection. Actually, celebrating the resurrection of Attis is a pagan imitation of biblical examples of Jesus' life, but the difference is large. Christ symbolizes virtues and the belief in the salvation of mankind, whereas the Attis mysteries worship just a tree.

Si Kristo ay nabuhay! Siya nga ay nabuhay!
