Easter Holiday Fun

I always feel that winter truly isn’t ready to move on until Easter comes around, and being someone who loves to celebrate holidays, I can’t let it past without some festiveness. The most common Easter tradition religious or not is dying Easter eggs. The first Easter eggs were typically dyed or painted red symbolizing the blood of Christ  at his crucifixion, a bit morbid, now a days Easter eggs are usually dyed any color of the rainbow and usually contain several colors on a single one.
