Many children believe the Easter Bunny visits at Easter and hides Easter eggs in their homes or gardens. Nowadays many visitor attractions hold Easter egg hunts and children can search for clues to win a chocolate egg at the end.
In Russia, jewelled Easter eggs were made famous by jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé. In 1885, Russian Tsar Alexander III wanted a special Easter gift to give his wife. Fabergé designed and made a golden egg with a surprise chicken inside. From then until 1917 Fabergé made eggs every year for Tsar Alexander to give to his wife and from 1895 for Tsar Nicholas II to give to his wife and mother. A total of 50 Imperial Eggs were made and each one was beautifully designed and intricately made, always with a surprise inside. The Fabergé eggs which still exist today are worth millions of pounds.
