DOUGHNUTS are a better symbol for Easter than the traditional egg, says a leading Tasmanian churchman.
The Anglican Dean of Hobart, Richard Humphrey, said he preferred the idea of the Easter doughnut over the traditional Easter egg.
Eggs don’t really have anything to do with Easter but you can attach some rich symbolism to a doughnut, he said.
They’re round like the stone that was rolled away from Jesus’s tomb, the tomb was empty, just like the hole in the doughnut, they’re shaped like a halo and the circle represents eternal life.
