Bulgaria:  In Bulgaria there's no such thing as an egg hunt. In fact, they use them to have play fights.  Whoever comes out of the game with an unbroken egg is the winner.
 
Mexico:  The Easter holiday is very colorful.  Children smash eggs over each other's heads before Lent begins.  The trick is that these eggs are filled with small bit of paper!
 
Germany: Easter eggs are dyed green
 
Greece: On Easter Sunday a public procession is held.
