THE LEGEND OF THE EASTER EGG

One day a poor peddler went to the marketplace to sell a basket of eggs. He came upon a crown mocking a man who staggered with a heavy cross on which he was about to be crucified. The peddler ran to his aid, leaving the basket by the roadside. When he returned, he found the eggs transformed into exquisite design of bright colors.
The man was Christ; the peddler, Simon. And the eggs were to become the symbol of rebirth for all mankind.
Ukrainian Folk Tale….
May All of the Wonder and Beauty of the Holy Season
Be Yours
