The Reason Why Eggs Are a Thing at Easter

Amy's son, Stevenson, was asking questions about Easter and wanted to know why eggs are involved in the holiday.

The entire Bobby Bones Show didn’t know the reason why, so they looked it up and found some pretty interesting answers. The reason is: In many pre-Christian societies' eggs held association with Spring and new life. Early Christians adapted these beliefs making the egg as a symbol of resurrection and the empty shell as Jesus’ empty tomb. The bunny is associated with Easter when it was introduced to Americans by the German immigrants who brought over their stories of an egg laying hare!
