Easter is the perfect time to slow down, enjoy quality time with the family, and get involved in all the Easter activities. Besides the spiritual meaning, Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of nature.
After months of gloomy and cold weather, the spring season feels like a real blessing to all of us. The blooming trees, brightly colored flowers, and the buzz created by all living creatures in the springtime are all symbols of fertility and new life. From here comes the Easter bunny and egg painting tradition (which in fact is a religious tradition).
Decorating eggs for the Easter celebration is a tradition that has been around for centuries. Just in the last two centuries, it has become popular in America and western culture has created multiple variations for Easter egg.
Whether is the Easter bunny who lays the eggs or you hide them in the grass and kids have to find them on Easter Day, is all part of the fun and joy of this amazing celebration.

Being a Christian myself and coming from a family who strictly respected the Easter traditions, we were preparing the Easter eggs a few days before the actual day. On Good Friday to be more precisly.
The way we were painting the Easter eggs was a traditional and natural way. Sometimes we were using onion skin for painting the eggs yellow or burnt orange, and often times we were using natural colored powder or paste.
Being a large family, this operation was quite important, as we had to make sure how we handle the eggs. On Good Friday we were preparing the chicken and duck eggs, washing and boiling them, and afterward, when they cool down we were dipping them a bit in the colored paste and roll them in the palms (wearing gloves) until they were nicely covered in the color I wanted.
For the onion skin ones, the process was different. We were peeling the dry onion skin and adding it in the same water where we boil the eggs. Once you decide how many eggs you want yellow, you have to boil them separate from the ones that will be painted with color paste.
This was my favorite part of the Easter celebration as I was enjoying getting my hands dirty a bit and that smell of the colored paste was somehow unique. Hard to describe if you’ve never had the chance to experience this. Once the eggs were painted, they had to be placed in the fridge until the Sunday, of Easter celebration.
There was a beautiful tradition to wash the face in a bowl with red Easter eggs and a few coins for good luck, health, and blushy cheeks (they were saying blushy cheeks it means you are healthy :)). I could go on with these traditions, but I don’t want to bore you, so instead grab some Easter egg dye and recreate these pretty egg designs.
Have fun and pin this post, you might need it again in the future.
