10,000 Eggs on an Easter Tree?!

10,000 Eggs on an Easter Tree?!

I have seen people decorate their outside trees with plastic eggs, but today I learned of a German family that decorates their tree with 10,000 real Easter Eggs! (Makes the 4 dozen I usually color seem so minimal.)

According to an AP Story, Voller Kraft and his family have been decorating this Easter Tree for 47 years. This Easter Tree has become a family tradition known not only in Kraft’s home town of Saalfeld, Germany, but all over the country, and now world, thanks to media coverage. Check out this video from the AP to see pictures of this amazing tree and perhaps inspire you to try some new designs with your Easter Eggs this year.

Our Freebie Friday question asked you what your favorite Easter and Passover traditions are. No one said decorating a tree with thousands of eggs, but coloring eggs, eating and cooking ham, and well as hiding and watching the kids search for the afikomen after dinner (Passover tradition) were very popular answers. Today’s question and answers remind me that holidays are a wonderful time for families to take a day off to celebrate traditions, each other, and beliefs.

Whatever your traditions are, we hope you have a very happy Easter/Passover/Spring.

  1. It’s really pretty, but I’m wondering if the eggs are hard boiled (decorated yearly) or hollow.
