Do Easter Eggs Grow on Trees?

Do Easter Eggs Grow on Trees?

You may have heard of the story of the German family that decorates a tree with 10,000 Easter eggs each year (they have been hollowed out, if you’re wondering). Voller Kraft and his family have been decorating their Easter Tree since 1965! It has become a family tradition known not only in Kraft’s home town of Saalfeld, Germany, but all over the country, and now the world, thanks to media coverage. What a wonderful tradition!

Whatever they are, we hope you have a very happy Easter/Passover/Spring!

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

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
