    Are they real chocolate eggs?

    No, Axelle, they aren’t chocolate eggs. The orange one is a real hard-boiled egg, all the others used to decorate fountains are plastic. πŸ˜‰ If those decorations were made of chocolate, they wouldn’t survive until Easter πŸ˜‰

    The little snow bunny is very cute πŸ˜‰
    Is Hidburghausen always decorated for Easter?

    The colourful balconies bring joy and happiness, don’t they? Winter is so long this year 😦

    Heloise, we have to admit that we didn’t create those colourful decorations…just the snow bunny…doing things like that is one of Mrs U’s hobbies πŸ˜‰
    Every year volunteers from clubs, institutions and companies – mostly women – decorate the fountains of the towns and villages here. Of course, people also decorate their front yards, putting eggs into trees and bushes. Have a look at the photos of this article http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/ostern-rentner-aus-thueringen-schmueckt-apfelbaum-mit-10-000-ostereiern-a-890133.html πŸ˜‰ You can find that tree decorated with 10,030 eggs in Saalfeld… πŸ™‚ Unbelievable, isn’t it?
