FILE - In this March 21, 2012 file picture Volker Kraft decorates a tree with 10,000 Easter eggs in the garden of the retired couple Christa and Volker Kraft in Saalfeld, Germany. The Kraft family has been decorating their tree for Easter for more than forty years. Kraft's apple sapling sported just 18 eggs when he first decorated it for Easter in 1965. The number increased year by year; and by last year, the sturdy tree was festooned with 9,800 eggs, artfully decorated with everything from sequins to sea shells. This time, Kraft has reached 10,000 - and he says he's stopping there. (AP Photo/Jens Meyer,File)
