What do Easter eggs mean on Easter?
The Easter egg represents the empty tomb that the two women found the day after Jesus had been crucified. But now most Easter eggs have chocolate inside them, this takes away the meaning and religiousness.

because they represent new life.
The egg has long since been a symbol for resurrection and new life; from the time of the ancient Persians, through Jewish culture, and well incorporated in the Christianity, t…he egg, a part of the celebrations about the Vernal Equinox, the comming of Spring, a time for planting and new life, has been a subject of wonder and veneration for just about all cultures. It appears in many religions as a critical symbol of new life, of Resurrection. They are almost entirely unrelated to fertility. Women have all but always been considered mere vesssels for something from men. And until Robert Hooke discovered and named the cell using the microscope developed by at least Lippershey, and Janssen in the early 1600s, that was also unclear or rather unseen. Ova does come from Latin meaning egg, but that is incidental to the role of the egg in religious symbolism. When one thinks about symbols, you just about have to drop back to prerecorded history, and try to understand the terror of a total eclipse of the sun. The egg is the symbol for new life, and for resurrection, not fertility. On the other hand, in the middle ages, particularly, in Germany a hare was said to lay eggs, and present them to children. It's not that far from the Easter Egg. The hare was a symbol of fertility, which makes sense in the light of the ability rabbits to breed without a season. Coloring eggs has been raised to an art form in many folk societies; some traditions originated with the religious symbol, but rapidly because commercial by-products in mass societies. And it has been suggested that with beginning in the 20th century, the Easter Egg became a symbol for a second leading time for the sale of chocolate products, and sales at clothing stores, in the United States and much of Europe. The best known use of the Easter Egg is for a West Lawn event at the Whitehouse, in the United States of America.
Easter Eggs, in the Internet and other realms stands for hidden things. From special scenes in games or videos, to hidden text or information elsewhere. In games, th…ere may be special moves or codes to be entered for access to special screens. The reference is to the tradition of children searching for hidden decorated eggs on the Easter Holiday. These need to be searched out, and while many are easily visible, many are hidden well.
some people say that Easter egg and in particular the rolling of Easter eggs symbolise the disciples rolling away the stone at the entrance to Jesus' tomb, however Easter eggs…, Easter bunnies and Easter chicks represent fertility, new life and the reawakening of spring.
There is no meaningful message or metaphor for doing an Easter egg hunt on Easter. It is simply a Western idea that rakes in the money for supermarkets, and provides some fun …for the children.

No. Eggs were symbols of fertility in celebrations before Easter was celebrated as a Christian holiday. The Easter egg is just a holdover from those pre-Christian times.
Perhaps he did. Eggs signify new life, which Jesus Christ gave us in the resurrection, allowing us to have eternal life after death with him in heaven. Thus the eggs signify n…ew life, this was its original beginning. It has become secularized, but it still has a Christian foundation.

Easter comes from a pagan spring rite and eggs represent the rebirth of the world after the death in winter. The Catholic Church in the Middle Ages was able to convert the pa…gan tribes and give another meaning to Easter.
The egg was a symbol of spring, fertility, and rebirth over 2,000 years ago, long before it began a world-wide association with the Christian celebration of Easter. There is n…o widely practiced symbolism associated with birds at Easter, unless the commercial sale of chocolate birds is considered a tradition in some places.
Yes, it is. Easter eggs are a very common symbol of Easter.
