Why are Lambs a Symbol of Easter? April 12 2017

They're cute, and we love them - but why exactly do we associate them with this holiday?

But if I asked you which holiday you associate most with lambs, you'd probably say Easter, of course. But why?

Well, there are a few different reasons. In many different religions, lambs symbolize sacrifice and renewal. 

Spring, especially the time around Easter, is a time when many animal births are occurring after a long winter, which may be another reason for our association of baby sheep with this time of year.

Not to mention, lamb is a traditional Easter day meal in many countries around the world.
