Why Ham on Easter?

Why do we eat ham on Easter? Why not Easter steak or Easter chicken?

The tradition of eating ham at Easter goes back to the days when most meat was slaughtered in the Fall. There were no refrigerators back then so all the recently slaughtered pork that wasn’t eaten during the winter went through the curing process in order to preserve the meat. The process took some time and the first round of hams were generally available around Easter making it the most viable option for holiday dinners. What’s your favorite Easter tradition?
