The main reason for the holiday known as Easter comes from the Christian religion. In the bible, which is the sacred text to Christianity, it outlines the persecution and resurrection of God’s son named Jesus. Although many people choose to celebrate Easter just for the fun of it, some families do choose to be traditional and honour this holiday's religious roots. If you are in one of these families then a great way to incorporate the religious legend is by illustrating it on your Easter eggs. You can do this by painting or sketching religious themed items onto your eggs such as a cross, a dove, a lamb or any other symbol that relates to the story of Easter as described in the bible.
Calligraphy is the ancient art of words and writing. This means that it includes not only what the words mean, such as in poetry or stories, but also in how the words look on the page through their style, such as using the cursive alphabet, and through formatting, such as how you place them on the page. So, are you a poet and don’t even know it? For this coming Easter, why not try your hand at calligraphy by doing it on an Easter egg? In paint, pen, marker, ink, or any other writing medium you can decorate your Easter egg through the beauty of words. You can do this by writing a poem, telling a story, outlining a quote, sending a message, telling a joke, or any other type of literary work using simply the beauty of the written language. You can also experiment by writing these ideas in different formats such as block letters, cursive lettering, or in any other aesthetic appeal.
For readers in the northern hemisphere, the holiday of Easter falls in the season of spring. Likewise, for readers in the southern hemisphere, the holiday of Easter falls in the season of fall, but who cares because, as I mentioned previously, it is the Southern Hemisphere so it’s still warm. With these warm temperatures, we are now associating these times with a renewal of life with images of newly emerging plants and by welcoming back our furry and our feathery friends. Therefore, what better way to celebrate spring than to show it in its glory on a beautiful egg?! So, when decorating your Easter egg, pop in a fancy flower, a smiling sun, a bouncing bunny or a cheery chick to bring in a little spring spirit into your Easter decorations.
