Tradición, origen y leyendas de los huevos de Pascuas

Hoy es domingo de Pascuas, además del significado cristiano de este día tan importante para los católicos, hay tradiciones que se conservan desde hace muchísimos años, una de ellas es regalar huevos de chocolate a la gente que queremos.

En casa tenemos también la costumbre de invitar a amigos y familiares y los más chiquitos pintan huevos duros, los ponen en canastitas y se los regalan a los grandes.

Después viene el conejito de Pascuas y esconde huevitos por el jardín y cuando les avisamos a  los chicos que ya paso el conejo, salen corriendo y felices con sus canastitas a buscarlos.

Es tan lindo verlos pintar los huevitos, con el amor con que los regalan y después la alegría cuando los encuentran en el jardín!!

Muchas veces los chicos me preguntaron por qué pasaba el conejo a dejarles huevitos, asique para responderles tuve que investigar un poco de donde viene esta tradición y hoy la comparto con ustedes por si sus hijos les hacen la misma pregunta.

Esta tradición viene desde hace muchos años desde las antiguas civilizaciones de Persia, China, Egipto, Grecia, Centro y Sudamérica, donde el huevo era el símbolo de la vida. Antes de que existiera la celebración judeocristiana, los huevos eran utilizados en los ritos y festivales de primavera y se regalaban o se intercambiaban, ya pintados o decorados.

Estas celebraciones festejaban precisamente el fin del largo y frío invierno, y el “renacimiento milagroso” de los árboles y flores.

El huevo al estallar con una vida dentro, se convertía en el símbolo de ese renacimiento.

Con la llegada del Cristianismo, el huevo se transformó en el renacimiento del hombre, al tiempo que la fiesta del equinoccio de primavera pagana se convertía en la fiesta de Pascua cristiana.

Del siglo IX a finales del siglo XVIII, la Iglesia Católica prohibió a los fieles comer huevos durante la Cuaresma pues los consideraba un alimento equivalente a la carne.

Debido a esto, la gente comenzó a conservarlos, y empezaron a cocerlos y pintarlos para diferenciarlos de los frescos y consumirlos finalmente el día de Pascua.

Así fue como se cree que esta costumbre fue introducida en el oeste del continente europeo. Más tarde, la tradición llegó a América con los misioneros. Se desconoce cómo los huevitos se convirtieron en el elemento más importante de las canastas de Pascua, pero existen muchas leyendas.

En la antigüedad, se creía que si una gallina ponía un huevo en Viernes Santo y se conservaba ese huevo durante 100 años, se convertiría en diamante.

O que si se encontraban dos yemas dentro de un huevo de Pascua, esto auguraría que la persona disfrutaría de una gran riqueza.

Para San Agustín, Obispo de Hipona y Doctor de la Iglesia, el huevo representaba la Resurrección y la inmortalidad de Cristo, así como la salvación del alma. Para él, partir un huevo de Pascua simbolizaba el momento en el que la enorme piedra que cubría el sepulcro se retiraba milagrosamente para que Jesucristo emergiera victorioso sobre la muerte.

Otra leyenda religiosa cuenta que había un pequeño conejo dentro de la cueva que utilizaron para darle sepulcro a Jesús. La historia dice que el animalito observaba cómo la gente que entraba lloraba desconsoladamente, y él también se entristeció.

El conejito decidió quedarse en el sepulcro aun después de que se colocara la piedra para cerrar la entrada, pues aunque no sabía exactamente de quién se trataba, sabía que debía tratarse de una persona muy importante y muy amada.

Al tercer día, el conejo fue testigo de un milagro: Jesús se levantó.

Entonces, el pequeño animal comprendió que se trataba del Hijo de Dios, y que la gente que lloraba tenía que saber lo sucedido, ya que Jesús había resucitado.

Como los conejos no pueden hablar, el conejo decidió llevarles un huevo pintado como mensaje de vida y regocijo. Desde entonces, se dice, el conejo sale todos los Domingos de Pascua a dejar huevos de colores para que la gente recuerde el día en que Jesús resucitó.

Hoy en día, para algunos, los huevos de Pascua siguen teniendo el significado religioso y místico de antes. Para la mayoría, son simplemente una diversión. Los chicos disfrutan enormemente al pintarlos y luego tener que encontrarlos.

  58. I think what you wrote was very reasonable. However, think on this, what if you were to create a killer title? I am not saying your content is not solid, but what if you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean is kinda boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  59. I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on a blog or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is triggered by the fire displayed in the post I read. And after this post. I was moved enough to post a thought 😛 I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or do a few of these responses come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting on other places, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you make a list every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  60. Cool info! Interesting information over here. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.| I couldn’t refrain from commenting. I ‘ve spent 1 hour trying to find such tips. I’ll also share it with a couple of friends interested in it. I’ve just bookmarked this website. Done with the task done, I going to watch some World cup Webcams. Danke!! Regards from Russia WM!

  61. Cool info! Interesting tips over this website. It is pretty worth enough for me.

  62. I have seen lots of useful issues on your web page about desktops. However, I have the viewpoint that netbooks are still not quite powerful more than enough to be a sensible choice if you generally do jobs that require a lot of power, just like video modifying. But for website surfing, microsoft word processing, and most other typical computer functions they are fine, provided you do not mind the tiny screen size. Appreciate sharing your notions.

  63. Thanks for sharing your ideas in this article. The other point is that any time a problem appears with a laptop motherboard, individuals should not take the risk regarding repairing that themselves because if it is not done correctly it can lead to permanent damage to all the laptop. It is usually safe to approach a dealer of your laptop for the repair of that motherboard. They have got technicians who have an competence in dealing with notebook motherboard problems and can have the right diagnosis and perform repairs.

  64. Thanks for your post. I also think laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular nowadays, and now are sometimes the only sort of computer included in a household. This is because at the same time actually becoming more and more inexpensive, their processing power keeps growing to the point where these are as effective as personal computers coming from just a few years back.

  65. Interesting blog post. Things i would like to contribute is that computer system memory must be purchased should your computer is unable to cope with what you do along with it. One can put in two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should always check the car maker’s documentation for the PC to make certain what type of storage is needed.

  66. One thing I would like to say is always that before acquiring more personal computer memory, take a look at the machine in to which it can be installed. In case the machine will be running Windows XP, for instance, the memory threshold is 3.25GB. Setting up a lot more than this would easily constitute any waste. Make certain that one’s mother board can handle the upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

  67. Thanks for your submission. I also think laptop computers are getting to be more and more popular currently, and now in many cases are the only type of computer included in a household. Simply because at the same time they are becoming more and more reasonably priced, their computing power is growing to the point where these are as strong as desktop computers coming from just a few years back.

  68. Thanks for the recommendations you have discussed here. Yet another thing I would like to mention is that computer system memory demands generally go up along with other advancements in the technological know-how. For instance, whenever new generations of processors are introduced to the market, there is certainly usually a corresponding increase in the type preferences of both the computer memory plus hard drive space. This is because the software program operated through these cpus will inevitably surge in power to benefit from the new technological know-how.

  69. Hello there friend! I was very pleased to find this web-site.I wanted to thanks for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you blog post. Again thanks alot for this!

  70. I’ve learned result-oriented things by your blog. One other thing I want to say is the fact that newer computer operating systems often allow extra memory to be used, but they as well demand more storage simply to operate. If one’s computer is not able to handle additional memory along with the newest software package requires that memory increase, it could be the time to shop for a new Computer system. Thanks

  71. Thanks for your strategies. One thing I have noticed is banks along with financial institutions understand the spending routines of consumers plus understand that plenty of people max out there their own credit cards around the vacations. They correctly take advantage of this particular fact and commence flooding a person’s inbox along with snail-mail box along with hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers shortly after the holiday season closes. Knowing that if you are like 98% in the American community, you’ll get at the one opportunity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and switch balances to 0 rate credit cards.
