Fun Fact Friday: Easter Eggs

Over here, Easter is celebrated a week later than it is in many other countries. Egg dying is a common here, but has a significant meaning. Above are some of the necessary items used to color and display the eggs. Traditionally the eggs are dyed a deep red, a color achieved from using the red dye or the bundles of sticks soaked in a particular way. Then, the eggs are placed on some green wheatgrass for show. The red is said to be a symbol of victory over death and the green of the grass is said to be symbolic of new life.
