One year, my Christian aunt and Jewish uncle hosted a seder, and my aunt put a beautiful very blue egg on the seder plate. She checked with my parents (both Jews) to make sure it didn’t bother them to have an Easter egg on the seder plate. That led to an epiphany years later. Dyeing eggs is fun, but who really needs that many hard boiled eggs? A large family seder! It’s all the better because kids get to show their beautiful eggs off to a large audience. We haven’t done it enough to be a family tradition, but maybe it will become one with my children’s generation.
