Easter just wouldn’t be Easter without chocolate eggs. But it wasn’t always this way. Chocolate confectionery, after all, is less than 200 years old, whereas Easter has been around for at least 2000 years. Eggs are a different story, though. They have much to do with the arrival of Spring and are associated with new life, and so it’s not much of a stretch to see their connection with Easter as symbolic of the resurrection of Christ.
