As Easter approaches and Germany's supermarkets are filled to the brim with holiday-themed chocolate, we at The Local put our heads together and came up with a list of appropriate egg idioms for your egg-ification.
- Drivers brace for major Easter traffic jams (28 Mar 13)
- Pensioner decorates tree with 10,000 Easter eggs (25 Mar 13)
- Easter Bunny smashes chocolate Santa record (23 Mar 13)
The more dedicated among our readers might remember that last year we listed all the nonsensical idioms based on bunnies. This year, the humble egg's influence on the German language takes centre stage.
After hours of research, we've dug up the most important egg idioms, from the abstract, “you fat egg!” and eyebrow raising “to let your balls dangle”, to the heartwarming “to be the yellow of an egg.”
So take a break from planning the Sunday morning Easter egg hunt, and have a browse through our list.
