what are the eggs for.....

I simply asked:
what are the colored eggs for
in Persian new year ceremony?

they said:
egg alludes to the human race 
and then 
colored eggs....
symbolize different colors of the human race
with the emphasis the fact that 
"humans are the members of the same body"
as the great Iranian poet Saadi says.

i was left in awe of  
such ancient rich culture
and a bit sad indeed 
how little i really know about it!
