Is there a meaning or tradition associated with smashing Easter eggs? It's a cute little video, but especially with William having recently been appointed Lord High Commissioner of the Church of Scotland, I was hoping for something a little more reverent from them on Easter.
Me too but I imagine like most people our age they are not genuinely religious at all. Charles has a video recording a poem about Christ and William and Kate do this? He is also the future Head of the Church of England. Meh.
Whelp, here's my take on this:
Eggs symbolize rebirth at Easter.
You start off seeing the whole egg.
Then you see the egg, after it has apparently been smashed by a rolling-pin.
Then the egg comes back together.
I may be going way deeper than either Kate or Will intended, but the world is slowly emerging from the pandemic, coming back together, being reborn, if you will.
As a dear friend has been known to exclaim - there 's a sermon in that.
