The tradition of food blessing at Easter, which has early-medieval roots in Christian society, possibly originated from a pagan ritual.[1][2] The tradition is said to date from the 7th century in its basic form, the more modern form containing bread and eggs (symbols of resurrection and Christ) is said to date from the 12th century.[3]
