Eggs are widely recognized as symbols of new life, and are used in various spiritual traditions – as symbols, they are most familiar to most of us in Western culture as Easter decorations and treats. Eggs, chicks, and chickens are as prevalent as the bunny at Easter.
In Greece, children and adults alike play an egg cracking game called tsougrisma on Easter. Players attempt to crack their boiled eggs against their friend’s egg; the last person with an un-cracked egg is considered the lucky one.
The Greeks traditionally dye their eggs red, symbolizing the blood and passion of Christ.
