You’re a Good Egg, Ben

Ben was the first to color his egg. He used a new-fangled thingy that spun the egg around in the dye and the result was an olive-colored Easter egg. But Ben said he was sticking by it. The rest decided to skip the spinner and do them the old-fashioned way by dipping the egg in dye and waiting for it to become its Easter-pastel color.

Tonight, across the world, people everywhere are preparing for Easter — some fulfilling age-old traditions and some making new ones. I hope you enjoy the photos I’ve collected from those getting ready to proclaim Alleluia!
