This Who Knew Wednesday we dive into Easter all around the world!
We shared about The Butter Lamb from Russia! Where families will take a small knob of butter and form it into the shape of a lamb!
Red Eggs are a tradition in Greece. The color red symbolizes the blood of Christ, so they only dye their eggs red!
We are use to Easter Bunnies here in the U.S. But in Australia, they have the Easter Bilby! They even make chocolate bilbies to bring awareness to the dwindling population of BIlibies.
The French take a lot of eggs on Easter and make one giant omelet! Yum!
