First of all for 40 days we cannot eat meat or drink milk or anyother animal products. We do this because Jesus did this too 40 days before he was crucified and also because to purify our body
and the spirit.
Every year on the Tuesday before Easter we paint eggs with red color to show the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for man. Also they express the joy of Jesus resurrection. We paint the eggs for Easter because the legend says that after the death of Jesus on the cross his mother Mary came with a basket full of eggs in order to bribe the guards who were protecting the cross, to let her burry his body and some drops of blood fell on the eggs.
