They symbolized demonstration of love and they were presented to the friends and relatives. Painted eggs were traditionally decorated at the time of Lent before Easter. Hence they are called “Easter eggs”. Painted eggs were sanctified and sometimes they were not eaten. They were being kept at least a year up to the next Easter.
