This man decorates the tree in his back yard every year. This year the egg count is up to 2900, about a 100 egg increase over last year's version. Placing all the eggs on the tree is bad enough, but who decorates all those eggs . . . ?
The tradition of the egg tree started in Germany. The eggs used for cooking Easter meals are not broken but are emptied by blowing the contents into a bowl through pinholes at either end of the egg. The hollow eggs are then beautifully decorated and hung from shrubs and trees during Easter week.
