When I was a kid, my momís family always did Easter egg painting with wax.  You can Google it or look it up on YouTube. 

Itís very fun but man, itís time-consuming.   And people donít seem to appreciate the effort, which is probably why I donít do it anymore.

Those are beautiful! When I was very young, a Hungarian woman at my church had that tradition in her family for many generations. She taught a few of us how to do it. I was probably a bit young for it, and my results weren't too impressive, but her eggs were unbelievable.

You just brought back some really sweet memories!

Church for us. Sometimes Easter dinner with family, but it's not a big deal.

Growing up, my family never did the typial Easter trappings - no eggs, no baskets, no decorating; it really was all about the religious significance. We've mostly kept that up with our kids, except I love putting together Easter baskets! Both my kids have a metal basket that we reuse each year, and I have so much fun finding small gifts appropriate for each of them (little to no candy, but colored Goldfish crackers make an appearance every year). I guess it's my Easter version of Christmas stockings (which we actually don't do.)

Interesting factoid - I have never in my life dyed eggs.
