Colorful Easter eggs: that's what the colors mean

The egg has been a sign of the life and resurrection of Christ since early Christian times. Correspondingly, the eggs used to be predominantly colored red, the color of blood and love. The coloring itself probably arose from the need to label the eggs: eggs were also not allowed to be eaten during Lent. So these had to be preserved and cooked. To distinguish between raw and boiled eggs, parts of plants were added to the cooking water to color the eggs.

Since the 12th century people have mainly colored on Easter Saturday the Easter eggs to be consecrated with other foods in colorful baskets in the church. The colors are by no means chosen arbitrarily. In some regions they are assigned different meanings:

  • Red: Sacrificial death of Christ
  • Yellow: Desire for enlightenment and wisdom
  • Green: Youth and innocence
  • Blue: Misfortune and cold
  • Orange: Strength, perseverance, ambition
  • White: purity

By the way, there is a simple trick to tell if eggs are still fresh: Put them in a glass with cold water. Fresh eggs lie on the floor, if an egg swims upwards, it is spoiled!

Frequent questions about Easter greetings

What do you write on an Easter card?

With the Easter greetings above, you have a large selection, but in general the following applies: In an Easter card, you wish the recipient all the best, good luck, health or in general you send greetings and show: I have thought of you and wanted to make you happy.

When do you send Easter greetings?

The right timing is crucial for Easter greetings, a delayed greeting gives the impression that you have forgotten - but it shouldn't be too early either. If you send Easter greetings in a professional environment, these should be with the recipient by Maundy Thursday. The office is no longer manned on Good Friday and greetings can no longer be received. Private Easter greetings can also be sent until the Easter weekend.

How long can you wish a Happy Easter?

If you look at it very carefully, the time of happy Easter does not begin until Easter Sunday, the day of the resurrection. However, it has become established to deliver Easter greetings and wish a happy Easter as early as Holy Week. It is also common on Easter Monday. The Easter season officially lasts until Pentecost, as soon as the Easter holidays are over, but usually the time for Easter greetings is also over.

What are the Easter customs?

Not only Easter greetings are a custom. Do you know the tradition of the Easter egg table? Two colored eggs are beaten lightly against each other with the tip - the winner is the egg that remains whole. In some regions of Germany this is often played at Easter, before the eggs are eaten.

There are numerous, sometimes exciting and sometimes curious, Easter customs around the world:

Bulgaria
The Bulgarians do not hide Easter eggs - they throw them at themselves. However, in such a way that the egg does not break if possible. Whoever succeeds in this feat will supposedly have a lot of success in the coming year. Baking Easter bread is even better known. It consists of eggs, sugar and fruit and can only be baked by unmarried girls.

Poland
Here it is custom to splash water on Easter Sunday ("Śmigus-dyngus"). However, it is more and more common for young people to tip whole buckets of water at other people instead of a few splashes of water. The custom is said to date back to 966, when the Polish ruler Mieszko I was baptized.

England
The British are a rough people, you can see that at Easter too. The islanders collect pussy willow branches and whip each other (gently) with them. Allegedly that brings luck - or welts. In some parts of England, residents let the colored eggs roll down sloping streets until the shell is broken.

Finland
In Finland things are even tougher: Friends get a light blow with the birch rod (Virpovitsa) on Palm Sunday. This is said to bring luck and symbolize the palm fronds when Jesus entered Jerusalem. But more reminiscent of running the gauntlet. For this, the children run through the streets on Easter Sunday, making noise and thus driving away the winter.

Philippines
Wait until the Easter bunny comes, then you will be big and strong ... This is how the Easter ritual there could be described: As soon as the daffodils ring on Sunday, the parents grab their little children by the head and lift them up. Indeed, because they believe that the children will get bigger that way.

United States
The “White House Easter Egg Roll” has been celebrated in the garden of the White House in Washington for more than 100 years: On Easter Monday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., a small part of the garden is converted into a playing field. The visitors then have to roll dozens of eggs with tablespoons to the finish.

Australia
In Australia, some engaged couples draw running water from a stream at Easter and keep it until their wedding day. They then sprinkle each other with it before going to church. It is said to bring happiness to the marriage.

Spain
In Catholic Spain, people go to Easter mass on Easter Sunday. The boys wear a few palm fronds, while the girls have them adorned with sweets and colorful bows. Anyone who has such a palm frond with them will then be blessed by the priest.

France
From Maundy Thursday to Holy Saturday, no bells ring in the entire country. That only happens on Easter Sunday - and then good friends embrace and kiss in joy at the resurrection of Christ. In parts of France, children have to look for a carriage pulled by four white horses. It is filled with eggs.

Greece
The faithful bring white candles with them to mass on the night from Saturday to Easter Sunday. At midnight, all but one will be deleted. On this one flame, which symbolizes the resurrection, all candles are later lit again and life is passed on in this way.

Italy
For the Italians, Easter begins with a funeral and silent march on Good Friday. The street lights are switched off during the procession, but candles are burning everywhere in the windows. On Easter Sunday, however, the spook is over, the bells ring again and we eat. Easter cake - a salty cake with boiled eggs and spinach - is tradition.

Switzerland
Easter customs change from canton to canton. In Valais, for example, residents only took to the streets barefoot on Good Friday - so as not to disturb the earth. On Easter Sunday, the sunrise is rung in with a dance of joy - the sun symbolizes the resurrection. If you are fit, you can do three somersaults.
