Czar Nicholas II, who ruled from 1894 until the Russian Revolution in 1917, took the ancient tradition to an imperial level by presenting the czarinas, his wife Alexandra, and his mother Maria, with extravagant eggs of precious jewels and gold (a total of 50) created by the famous jeweler Peter Carl Faberge.
And we will have, depending on the final outcome of House-Senate negotiations, about 100 or so new health agencies, a Health Choices Commissioner, a few score new czars and czarinas, and several thousand high-priced partridges in expensive pear trees.
The Faberge imperial eggs were Easter gifts which Russia's last two czars gave to their czarinas, and are the biggest symbols of old Russia's artistic craftsmen.
