Until today I had no idea this phenomenon ever existed; the age old trend of posing with a giant egg for Easter. These days kids tend to pose with the Easter Bunny, but before he became the symbol of Easter Sunday, it appears that the egg, in various sizes from big, gigantic to huge was the icon of this beloved holiday. I found a whole slew of very odd, awkward and amazing images from about a hundred years ago of women and children posing fondly with giant eggs. Yeah, it’s even weirder than it sounds. Check out all the egg love here.
