Come and join us for Easter egg decoration on Friday, April 3 at 4 p.m. and learn about when and where the tradition started.
Did you know that the Macedonians were the first Christians on record to use eggs in connection with Easter? Children brought all the eggs they could find, dyed them, and sold them in the marketplace. Most of the Macedonians eggs were red, though a few were dyed yellow and green.
In many parts of the world, Easter is time for races of all kinds.
