Easter, or Pascha in the Aramaic language, is also called Resurrection Sunday and is the foundation of Christian faith. Celebrating Easter Sunday culminates the 40-day Lenten Season or Holy Week. Jewish Passover and Easter are closely associated due to their symbolisms.
Easter eggs symbolize Christ’s empty tomb when he resurrected on Easter Sunday. Hence, an Easter egg hunt would symbolize looking for Christ as He is nowhere to be found.
