This German Family Decorating A Tree With 10,000 Painted Eggs

Easter tree? Yes, you read it right. It is the only and the most beautiful Easter tree I ever saw. Tree decoration with eggs during Easter is not unusual thing in Germany. These trees are called “Eierbaum”, “Osterbaum” or “Ostereierbaum” in German, meaning a tree that is decorated with eggs at Easter.

Christa and Volker Kraft from Saalfeld (Germany) with their family took it very seriously and used more then 10,000 eggs for Easter tree decoration.
