Celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, Easter is an important Christian festival. The day marks culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

With Easter round the corner, it is time to think about Easter eggs and how to get creative. The colouring of eggs has evolved over the period of time. Early Christian Church believers stained eggs red to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The practice later gained popularity and the church adopted the use of eggs in the Easter celebrations.

You can use the commercial dyeing kits to colour your eggs or go for the Faberge egg. But, making the perfect hard boiled egg can be tricky at times.

Here is your guide to make the perfect hard-boiled egg:

1. Put the eggs in the pot and cover the eggs with an inch of water.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar.

3. Bring the water to boil.

4. Let the eggs boil in the water for 30 seconds.

5. Turn off heat and cover the pot.

6. Keep the eggs in the pots for 12 minutes.

7. Take out the eggs.

These perfectly boiled eggs are ready to be coloured.
