Facts about painted eggs

Since from Russia to Greece the Orthodox used to paint their eggs red, but in Germany their favorite color was green and the tradition is so great that the week leading up to Easter is called the green week, as well as Thursday green. In Bulgaria the tradition was even hotter, because instead of hiding the painted eggs they fought with the eggs in their hands, it was a real pitched battle and whoever managed to finish the battle with their egg intact was successful until the next Easter. This habit spread to other countries such as England, as Edward I offered gold-plated eggs to his favorite subjects. In France Louis XIV painted and decorated eggs to send as gifts and from this gesture came the fashion of making artificial eggs such as:
