Easter Egg Tree

DSC_9498_edited

In Germany many people decorate a tree outside, or a branch inside with Easter eggs.

It is to celebrate the change from Winter, when everything is bare and grey, to Spring when everything is green, and the flowers bloom.

 

Lots of shops are selling the eggs for hanging on your tree.  They can be made from plastic, glass, ceramic, or china.  You can also make them yourself by blowing the egg out of the shell and painting them, but these are fragile.
