Tree Decorated with 10,000 Easter Eggs


Volker Kraft of Eastern Germany has his limits. After putting 10,000 real eggs on the tree this year, he says he's stopping there.

“There will be no increase because I do not have storage capacity anymore,” the 76-year-old retiree says. “I would have to sleep with the eggs otherwise.”

Kraft started the tradition back on the Easter of 1965, when he used only 18 eggs. In the town of Saalfeld, his tree has become a tourist attraction, drawing thousands of people every year.
