Egg-celent traditions

Sidney McMinn and Rileigh Garmon

Easter is a religious holiday that takes place between March 22-April 25 on a Sunday during spring time. One way to welcome spring is through dying eggs. Dying Easter eggs has been a way of celebrating Easter since the nineteenth century. The eggs represent a symbolic message of resurrection, meaning the egg represents life and being reborn.

Freshman Brooke Thompson has quite a bit of experience when it comes to egg dying, she has been doing it for as long as she can remember. Easter egg dying is a fun and easy activity to do with anyone; the egg dying kit comes with a clear crayon, color tablets, and stickers to decorate the eggs with.

“For decorating, I personally like to dye my eggs a solid color and put stickers on them after, but I know some others like to use white crayons to make designs and then dye them,” Thompson said. “I can’t even remember how long we’ve been dying eggs. We’ve been doing it for so long.”
