What would ten thousand Easter eggs on a tree look like? You’d have to go to Germany to find out. Newspapers today have been merrily reporting on Volker Kraft’s garden, because he joyously hunt exactly that number of colored eggs on his tree. The egg collection has grown from 18 in 1965 to the current amount, and he says that’s where it will stop.
There isn’t room on the tree for any more, and he’s getting up there in years. While Mr. Kraft did once use plastic eggs, the current decorations are real eggs, pierced by a pin with the inside blown gently out. This is a tradition in both Germany and many other European countries, and it’s probably a lot greener than using plastic toys.
The Saalfeld eggs attract visitors from all around, because nobody else does this on such a grand scale. Who knew that eggs grew on trees?
