Red Egg Jelly

As a Chinese, our tradition, following a child birth we will gives away red eggs to family members and close friends. Red eggs is a symbol... of announcing a good news...so if next time you see Red Eggs in a Chinese family means there is a celebration. Red is also a auspicious colour among Chinese. As for Easter Red Egg is the  of rebirth of Christ...Our Saviour..
