Are You Coloring Eggs For Easter?

Did you know that decorating eggs comes from a Ukrainian tradition:? Ornate eggs were called “pysankas,” which were made by using wax and dyes.  And it wasn’t until Ukrainian immigrants came to the U.S. that the custom caught on.    A poll finds 49% of Americans who celebrate Easter will do it this year.   The top 3-reasons we dye eggs all have to do with family time:  To make memories . . . to do a fun family activity . . . and to spend quality time with the kids.   Here are a few more quick Easter egg stats . . .
