Chinese red eggs
| Chinese red eggs ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Chinese red eggs (红鸡蛋) are bright pink coloured cooked chicken eggs. The eggs are first hard boiled and then a wet red calligraphy paper is smeared over the eggs to create a pink colouring.
In Chinese culture, it is common to find at the baby´s first birthday a bowl of brightly coloured cooked chicken eggs on the guests' buffet or serving tables.
==Origin and folklore==
Similar to Western easter eggs, in Chinese culture eggs symbolize birth or a new start. For eggs to be served to guests during an important birthday (such as the first month or first year) is very significant. The colour red means prosperity and good fortune to the Chinese, while white or beige is considered the colour of death.
