The origins of the Easter Egg predate the Christian holiday of Easter. Many customs we see in our modern holiday celebrations were adopted & adapted from other traditions in order to ease the cultural conversion to Christianity. The egg was a standard symbol for the rebirth of the earth in celebrations of spring, but it was adopted by early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus... The concept being the Rebirth into New Life Jesus Christ brought us with His Resurrection. Customarily in the centuries-old tradition, eggs were often wrapped in gold leaf or--if you were a peasant--colored brightly by boiling them with the leaves or petals of certain flowers. Today, children hunt colored eggs and place them in Easter baskets along with the modern version of real Easter eggs--those made of plastic or chocolate candy. However, other than keeping young children busy & entertained, I could find no explanation for the tradition of the egg-hunt.
Hope this helps. Take Care.
