Eggs to Dye For

The Braddock District in Fairfax County, Virginia, traditionally dedicates its Winter Town Meeting to senior issues. This year, residents of a local senior center were asked to share stories of their pasts. Stories like that of Lola Petsche, who arrived from Cuba with her four-year-old daughter in 1949:

Upon her arrival, [...] she remembers seeing her host preparing eggs in a strange way, by boiling them and dyeing them bright colors. It was Easter, but Petsche had never seen anything like it.

"I said, 'I think I am going to like the United States, even though they eat weird things,'" said Petsche. [Link]
