An egg is a traditional symbol of rebirth. The vernal equinox was celebrated in pagan traditions for many centuries. At the vernal equinox, day and night are of equal length. After the equinox, days become longer. This is a return of life and the oficial beginning of spring. Many animals, especially birds, begin their courtship and mating rituals. Christianity has set Easter at this time because Jesus is to return form the dead; a rebirth. For this reason, Christians continue to decorate eggs as a symbol of return from death, spring, and rebirth. The phoenix is also a symbol of rebith. It is a mythical creature that lives for a period of time, becomes old, and bursts into flame. It is then reborn from its own ashes. You can see an example of such a creature in the Harry Potter movies.
