The Origins of Coloured Eggs

Published

on

Decorated eggs have been around our lives, in fact, they’ve been around way before we were even born. The history of coloured eggs can be traced back to the very early cultures of the pre-dynastic period of Egypt, when ostrich eggs (bigger than chicken eggs) were adorned with silver and gold colours, in addition to symbol engravings being placed in graves alongside the dead. This tradition dates back to the pharaonic period. People then associated eggs with “death and rebirth”.

However, the actual decoration of Easter eggs is the courtesy of Christendom, a custom that first originated in Mesopotamia. People then used to colour Easter eggs in red as a tribute to Christ, a symbol of the blood that he had to shed. The ritual then spread to Siberia and Russia and all of a sudden, dying eggs became a global tradition.

When I was a kid, my mama used to buy us eggs and food colouring every Easter, so that we could join in and really feel that Sham El Neseem spirit. Although I almost always failed at making those eggs look pretty in any way, I really enjoyed the whole process of mixing colours using brushes and trying to come up with cool designs to make my eggs (pun not intended) look fabulous. Then, my mom would put all the eggs my sister and I painted on display until they started to smell really bad and really had to go.

Nowadays however, things are very different. Times have changed and one doesn’t give much attention to painting eggs as they used to. Today, whenever Easter springs upon us (pun intended), I simply make a trip to the supermarket and buy my family a bunch of chocolate eggs coloured in lovely looking foil and I am not complaining. Nobody colours eggs today. Chocolate eggs and bunnies are the “it” Easter gifts now and I don’t believe that the trend is going away anytime soon. After all, chocolate eggs are actually edible and delicious, unlike raw eggs that spoil so damn fast.

What do you think Easter will look like in the future, though?

The movie is produced by Mohamed El Komy, and it has been said that the movie’s budget is huge and backed by a number of American companies, which gives us high hope for the first 3D movie to be a huge game-changing point for the cinema industry.

15 years after the series concluded, Hillary Duff announced on social media that her character Lizzy McGuire will be returning to the screen for a sequel of what used to be our favorite show, only this time she will be working her dream job instead of navigating life as a teenager.

Duff, who is now a mother to a seven-year-old son and a nine-month old daughter, wrote on Instagram, “SURPRISE!!! I’ve been trying to contain this excitement for a loooong time while this has been in the works! I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl…and into her 30’s.”

The new streaming service Disney+, which is premiering on November 12, will be the channel hosting the show.

The streaming service will launch with the debuts of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and The Mandolorian. There’s currently no premiere date for Lizzie McGuire available, but we’ll certainly keep you posted!

We can’t wait to see this new version of Lizzie who sure is no longer a clumsy schoolgirl, but rather a 30-year-old millennial navigating her way around the big apple!

“Lizzie has also grown up, she’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget,” Duff said.

“She has her dream job, the perfect life right now working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator. “ She added.

The rest of the cast joining Duff still remains a mystery so we don’t know yet who from the original cast will be joining this comeback, and we can’t help but wonder if we will be seeing more of Gordo, Miranda, Matt or Lizzie’s parents.
