What do Lebanese Christians give eachother during Easter???

A purple chick of course. Or a blue one. Or red. Or green maybe.

Last couple of days you could buy these rainbow chicks everywhere in Beirut's Christian suburbs. It is unknown what happens to the colour the moment the chick becomes a full grown chicken.

Price per rainbow chick: 2000 lira (or 1 euro).

Btw: Most die within two or three days. That is chicks, not salesmen. The chicks drop dead due to lack of warmth or proper food.

I made these photo's with my rather crappy cell phone.
