Easter Eggs And Easter
I bet you didn't know that marshmallow candy dates back to the times of ancient Egypt where it was a honey based candy and it was thickened with the sap of the root of the marshmallow plant. The marsh mallow plant grows in salt water marshes and on the banks of large bodies of water. It is a common plant on the east coast of the United States. Until the mid to late 1880's the sap of the marsh mallow plant was used to make candy in the USA but it was replaced with gelatin. Today's marshmallows and all those darling little peeps are made out of corn syrup, sugar, gelatin and flavorings. So now you know what's in the peeps.
And that's the rest of the story. I just wonder where they came up with all those new colors of peeps and what do they taste like.
What Is Easter
Easter is a celebration of the Christian belief that Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day. But this holiday has it origin in Pagan beliefs. Today Easter has become, Leg of Lamb Dinners , Brightly Colored Easter Eggs , Cute Little Yellow Chicks and Small Fluffy Bunny Rabbits. Like Christmas Easter has been commercialized.
Many people forget that Christ is the reason for the season and that Easter is the celebration of Jesus Christ raising from the tomb after three days in the earth.
Easter can also be a fun time for you and your children to create lasting memories that they are going to remember for many years to come. I know in our family Peeps have always been a traditon and our whole family watches every year for the first one that finds Peeps in a store. He or she hurries home to share them with everyone. We or I know at least me also has a thing for Cadbury Easter Eggs. I watch for that Cadbury Easter Commercial to come on TV so I will know the Cadbury Bunny has delivered those delicious tasting Easter treats to the stores so I can run down and get some.
Be sure you take some time out of your busy plans to make time to make long lasting memories with your children. If you read and look around this Easter Hub Page you might just get some great ideals for an Easter project or two.

Grandmother's Love Filled Easter Eggs
Grandmother used to personalize her eggs by enclosing special messages inside the egg shells.
With a sharp needle or pin poke a small hole in the small end of the egg and a larger hole in the larger end. Puncture the egg yolk with the needle inserted into the larger hole. Hold the egg over a recepticle and blow through the small hole to blow the egg out. After all the egg has been removed from your shells carefully and gently wash the eggs out with soapy water. Decorate the outside of the shells any way you want to. You can include messages or even dollar bills inside the eggs thru the large hole. Then just place a piece of tape over the hole. We hide $5 , $10 , $20 inside of eggs at our annual Easter Egg Hunt.
It was a legend among the Egyptians , Persians , and Hindus that the world was born out of a giant egg. The egg as a symbal of new life or life renewed has been around for a very long time. In some European countries it is a tradition for the children to go door to door asking for colored eggs much like Halloween here in the United States. Egg rolling contests in some cultures at Easter are symbolic of the stone being rolled away from the tomb of Christ.
That roast leg of lamb dinner that many eat on Easter is not a Christian tradition but rather a Jewish one. At the Jewish Passover Festival the lamb was roasted and eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
