Spring rituals involving eggs have more to do with the nesting 
behaviour of birds than with religious dogmatism. Spring rituals 
pre-date the gods and will probably exist long after the gods are gone - 
we are to an extend animals that feel invigorated by the onset of warmer 
weather and milder downpour, trees blossoming, and animals coming out of 
hibernation. As the world springs back to life after winter, so does the 
human spirit, and that will call for a celebration regardless of the 
presently prevailing religious insanities. And eggs are tied to this 
season. In fact, it is you who follows religious dogmatism by 
attributing these symbols to the christian savages.
