Introducing 3...

I wish everyone a wonderful Easter Sunday and as part of that here are three facts about Easter:

1. In medieval times a festival of egg-throwing was held in church, during which the priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choir boys. It was then tossed from one choir boy to the next and whoever held the egg when the clock struck 12 was the winner and retained the egg.

2. The name Easter owes its origin from Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess who symbolizes hare and egg.

3. Decorated eggs became a mainstay of the Easter celebration in 17th century Germany when parents began decorating eggs and leaving them for their children to find before breakfast.
