Families take hen's eggs and boil them in water until the inside yoke is hard. The eggs are not eaten. The children paint the outside of the eggs various bright colors. They leave empty colorful wicker baskets in the living room. While the kids are asleep their parents fill the baskets with candy, chocolate, and toys. The children believe that the Easter Bunny had visited and brought the gifts. The adults gather up the hard-boiled eggs and hide them outside along with coloful plastic eggs filled with candy. The kids all get together and hunt for the eggs hidden all around. They get to keep whatever they find. Adults often wear lights colors and pastels when attending picnics.
