With UB hero it is the herald of decay, when sap returns to the earth, leaves fall, and life becomes dormant tor the winter months.

In some parts of Scotland it is customary for people to go out early on Easter Day in search of wildfowl egas, those who find the greatest number being deemed the most lucky. In Germany eggs, after being boiled hard, are ornaraen ted or have proverbs written upon them, and are then hidden behind bu...
