Last year we featured Christa and Volker Kraft’s incredibly awesome tradition of decorating a tree in their garden in Saalfeld, Germany with 10,000 Easter eggs.

The couple has been decorating their tree in this fashion for over 40 years now and, as you can see in the photos above, this year the Easter tree is looking more splendid than ever.

Der Osterhase (Easter Bunny) originated in Germany among Lutherans/Protestants - it played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient at the start of the season of Eastertide. In legend, it carries colored eggs, candy, and sometimes toys in its basket, delivering them to the homes of children, similar to the Weihnachtsmann (Santa Claus) or the Christkind. The custom was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Franckenau’s “De ovis paschalibus” (About Easter Eggs) in 1682, referring to the German tradition. Similar to other German Christmas traditions like the Christmas tree or Santa Claus, much of the Western world has picked up on it.
