Easter eggs come from chickens or hens. Then they are packaged and shipped to the grocery store for you to purchase and hard boil. Yummy, however the Easter egg comes from tradition and holidays. We utilize the Easter egg because of fertility. Easter is Passover fro when Jesus Christ lay in the crypt waiting to be risen from the dead. Easter eggs are good if they are hard boiled, the candy filled ones with cute little faces are even better. Why does it matter so much as where they come from when the importance is how great they taste.
