There are decorated 5,000 year old ostrich eggs in museums around the world, which they still don’t know much about. But decorated and giving eggs has been around a long time!
I remember getting sugar eggs with pictures inside at Easter, along with the chocolate eggs and jelly beans.
No matter what they are really made of, or how old they are, the giving and decorating of eggs is an old tradition usually meaning rebirth. We are all ready for some new phase of life, and Spring!
