Kids will also recall how to paint eggs, how tasty are Easter cakes, home-made pies, sweets, Easter rabbits….Easter has established traditions that were followed by our grand and grand –grand parents. To paint eggs –is one of them.
But what is the origin of this tradition to paint eggs? There are several versions. According to the first version, Maria Magdalen brought to Emperor Tiberius a chicken egg, a symbol of rebirth and a new life, together with the news about the resurrection of the Christ. The Emperor did not believe here, either he did not believe that a white egg could become a red one. Suddenly an egg brought by Maria changed its color and became red.
Another story is more pragmatic. In the early times within Lent people died the eggs in red to distinguish them from the raw eggs. Later this process became an Easter tradition. First people painted eggs only in red and then the colors became diverse.
Today we use not only paints but also other different material: pens, markers, paper, stamps, stickers, grass, leaves, flowers, etc. Just switch on your imagination and start creating.
It is also very important to create a holiday atmosphere in your house. Usually before Easter people start throw away old and unnecessary things and clean up their houses. House should be fresh and clean. After that decoration time comes. Put fresh flowers; decorate your house with Easter wreaths and nests. The nests with colored eggs can be located in any place of your house.
The Easter table should be decorated simultaneously. Select bright –yellow and clear colors. A bouquet of flowers in the middle of the table will add to the whole interior a spirit of spring.
