This information was taken from teacher notes, "THE STORY" which our church is currently studying.
It is not fact, nor Biblical but it could shed some light on how we happen to dye Easter eggs. Might be fun to retell the 'legend' to children or grandchildren as you color Easter eggs together and as we tie the event back to Jesus:
"Legend has it that the coloring of Easter eggs
originated from Mary of Magdala
who presumably brought eggs with the other women
at the tomb of Christ.
When she saw the Lord,
the eggs in her basket turned bright red.
Thus, the true meaning of dyeing eggs
is to show the miraculous transformation
of the whole world by the
resurrection of Christ."
