She Covers Thread In Glue, Then Wraps It Around A Balloon To Create A Unique Decoration
Easter eggs are probably the the biggest symbol of the holiday, but how did this tradition get started? People have been decorating eggs for thousands of years. In fact, decorated ostrich eggs are commonly found in graves of ancient Sumerians and Egyptians. In Christian tradition, early practitioners dyed eggs red to represent the blood of Christ. It is also thought that eggs became associated with Easter because they were originally forbidden during Lent. Today, Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches still follow the original tradition of dying the eggs red. Members of the Roman Catholic Church in Poland use decorated eggs in special baskets, over which they say special blessings.
