    As a journalist, I covered revolutions sweeping eastern Europe more than a decade ago. One spring in Prague, I bought eggs like these from women who had made their way into public squares with suitcases full of these painstakingly decorated ornaments.

Serbian easter egg

Love this instructional picture on how to decorate and dye eggs naturally. We can't tell exactly what they use for the dye. Our best guess is black tea or coffee! This could work with red beets, red cabbage or turmeric for other shades of color.

I wanted to share with you our Serbian traditional way of dying Easter eggs - no artificial colors or dyes needed. Put any leaves you like on the surface of the egg and carefully place them in a stocking. Boil these eggs in water full of onion skins. The result are beautiful, earthly colors and interesting patterns.

Serbian Easter Bread - This sweet braided egg bread as hard-cooked eggs that have been dyed red are nestled atop the braid. The red color symbolizes the blood Christ shed and the eggs are a universal symbol of Christ's resurrection.
