Easter Day is also the first day of Spring and the first day of the year. You can read more in All About Easter. The association of Easter with eggs is a natural one as they represent new life at springtime, but there is also a deeper symbolism in connection with the creation of the world; in a very real sense, Easter is the re-creation of the world.
