Mr. Easter Chook

Chickens and rabbits come together at one time of the year.

I have already mentioned the Easter Bunny, and so today I tell the story of the Easter Chook.

Wouldn't it be great if chickens laid colourful eggs?

But alas they do not, and so, as part of Orthodox Easter traditions that have existed in my house for as long as I can remember, we dye them ourselves.

Some years I get creative and do resists with leaves and other things.

This year I kept it simple.

And dyed not only the eggs, but my kitchen and hands as well.

(Food friendly and environmentally friendly dyes, so don't worry about what I'm sending down the drain!)
