Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg hunts are usually held the day before Easter. They are as much a part of Easter as pumpkin picking is to Halloween, and presents are to Christmas. Easter egg hunts are held by families, organizations, and even as local town events. Easter egg hunts are fun and easy. A number of colored eggs are hidden, usually separated by two to four age groups. On a given signal, the children race to find the hidden eggs

In days gone by, the eggs were hard boiled and decorated. Most commonly today, hollow plastic eggs are used. These eggs are filled with candies or a coin. Sometimes a prize slip for a bigger prize is included.

However this event is carried out, it is always over too quickly. Organizers spend hours making the eggs, or filling them with prizes. Then, they carefully hide dozens, or even hundreds of eggs. For all these hours of effort, the hunt only lasts minutes, as eager children race to find their prizes.

Our favorite events, are family or neighborhood egg hunts. Typically, each family arrives with some goodies to eat. Fasting is over, so people enjoy their first taste of sweets since Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.  After the hunt, the children play, and the adults get a chance to mingle and chat. And, if you are lucky, you will enjoy the first warm breezes of spring.
