Feminista Easter Eggs (+ Free Printable) | Curbly.com

Eggs are inherently feminine, right? They are a direct manifestation of a female creature walking around, just doing her female thing. Easter, back in its day, was pretty feminine too. Originally a celebration of the spring equinox, it's a day that used to be set aside in reverence of the Sumerian goddess of love and fertility, Ishtar. You know what else is pretty womanly? Me! The author of this post! With all of these elements combined (plus a dash of energy from the influx of female empowerment that I'm feeling everywhere around me), I decided to decorate my Easter eggs in pink and symbols of power. Girl power.

Make It: Crystal Egg Geodes

by DIY Maven

Skip the traditional Easter eggs this year and make crystal egg geodes. (Yeah, baby.)  Equal parts craft project and science experiment, they'll have everyone oohing and ahhing over your basket, that's certain. Save for the alum powder (buy here!), the materials are probably already things you have on hand. Check out the entire tutorial over at--where else--Martha's digs.

I don't know if this chicken family finally solves the 'what came first, the chicken or the egg' conundrum or if it makes if more tricky. What I do know is they're darling!

I enjoy dying easter eggs (really, I do...), but I don't have a use for ALL those hard boiled eggs that come out of the project.

It's All About the Nog: Egg Nog Recipes and Ideas for the Holiday Season.

by Chris Gardner

Egg Nog is a dichotomizing phenomenon: egg nog fans tout its contributions to holiday cheer, and those with a distaste are avid and vocal nog haters.

Perhaps the source of the schism is the source: those who love it have experienced true, homemade egg nog (most likely with some Christmas "spirits" added), and those who hate must only know the nasty storebought options. I'd always been in the latter category until last December, when I experienced...
