HOYERSWERDA, GERMANY - MARCH 24: Melanie Baier from the village Obergurig wearing a traditional Lusatian sorbian folk dress, paints an Easter egg in traditional Sorbian motives at the annual Easter egg market on March 24, 2012 in Schleife, near Hoyerswerda, Germany. Easter egg painting is a strong part of Sorbian tradition and visual elements within the painting are meant to ward off evil. Sorbians are a Slavic minority in eastern Germany and many still speak Sorbian, a language closely related to Polish and Czech. (Photo by Carsten Koall/Getty Images)
