Why eggs on Easter? Easter eggs crossed the Atlantic to America as part of an Easter tradition of the German immigrants who landed in Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. The Germans had a spring time story of an egg-laying rabbit who was called the “der Osterhase” ( aka Easter Bunny).

If the children made nests, then der Osterhase would lay its colored eggs for them. These eggs were often boiled with available flowers and other plants which produced the colors we emulate today with dye.
