Look! Colored Eggs in Swiss Supermarket

When I was in Switzerland a couple weeks ago I visited Migros, a large supermarket, and I was shocked to see these eggs! No, not shocked to see raw eggs sitting on the shelves (in Europe eggs are invariably kept on the shelves, instead of in the refrigerated cooler) — I was surprised to see colored eggs. We're nowhere near Easter!

So what's the deal with all these shelves of colored eggs?

My hostess said that oh yes, they always have colored eggs on the shelves. She seemed to think it was quite normal. "They're so nice for picnics," she said.

What do you think of this? Why not have colored eggs all through the year — not just on Easter? Heck, you could do some brown and orange eggs for Halloween!
