    2. Because it symbolizes new life, many consider the egg an
  aphrodisiac.
    3. German and Slav peasants rubbed a mixture of eggs, bread and
  flour on their plows hoping to improve the harvest.
    4. To ensure a big family, a 17th-century French bride would crack
  an egg on her new home's doorstep before entering.
    5. In the 19th century, builders in Bombay, India, put an egg and
  milk into the foundations of new structures to protect them from harm.
    6. The Bible claims fowl originated before the egg in the excerpt
  "And God said 'Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving
  creatures that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth....'".
    7. One thoughtful woman who, when asked by a child which came first,

  THE EASTER CONNECTION
    Even before Christian times people colored, blessed or exchanged
  eggs as part of the rites of spring to welcome the sun's awakening
  from its long winter sleep. Early Christians adopted the egg, which
  represented the renewal of life, as a symbol of Christ's resurrection
  from the grave.
    Several folk tales explain the origin of dyeing Easter eggs. One
  legend from Poland recounts how the Virgin Mary herself painted
  boiled eggs in bright colors to please the infant Jesus.
    People around the world celebrate Easter or new beginnings with
  eggs. Eastern Europeans may exchange eggs bearing the letters "XB" for
  :Christ is Risen". Russians exchange a decorated egg and three kisses.
  Chines people present a red hard-boiled egg with congratulations when
  a child is born. And German immigrants to the U.S. introduced the
  tradition of the Easter bunny delivering colored eggs to children.
