Easter Eggs have a long history. Ancient Egyptians and Persians colored eggs during their spring festivals for centuries before Christianity existed. The egg has always been a symbol of rebirth, which is why it was so appropriately tied to the Easter holiday.

In the early days of the church, eggs were forbidden during Lent, which may have spurred the tradition of exchanging them on Easter. Eggs were often wrapped in gold leaf or, if you were a peasant, colored brightly by boiling them with the leaves or petals of certain flowers.

Children and adults today have their own special processes for achieving eggs designed to their specifications.. Many differing kits are widely available to suit your artistic desires.

Following, enjoy a variety of Eggs from all over the world. Bet ya can't guess my favorite!

Yep! You guessed right! And it is NOT hollow! "Death my Chocolate", indeed!
