It was Easter Sunday. Mary took a little basket and went to the garden. She went there to look for* Easter eggs.
“Mum, why are Easter eggs yellow, red, green and blue? Do they come from colourful hens?” Mary asked.
“No,” Mum said. “They are of different colours because we paint them.”
The girl asked, “Why do you paint the eggs?”
Mum said, “It’s an Easter tradition. A tradition is something people do every year.”
“Next year I will help you paint the eggs, too,” Mary said.
