Since 1878 the White House Easter Egg Roll has taken place on the South
Lawn. In 2009 President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are
continuing the Easter tradition, started by President Rutherford B. Hayes.
The theme for 2009 is "Let's Go Play", clearly setting an example for
children to more active pursuits. This is the first year when people
can apply for tickets online. We do hope that President Obama's
daughters Malia and Sasha will take part in the White House Easter Egg Roll
on April 13th.
An Easter Egg hunt is a wonderful game for adults to organize for
children. Years ago it was something that parents did in their
downstairs rooms, nowadays it the Easter Egg Hunt has evolved into an
outdoor event for the whole neighbourhood.
Organization plus the greater expanse has created more creative
opportunities both for the egg hiding places and the clues to locate the
chocolate treasure. If you are the organizer try to make it as fun as
possible, the secret is to keep them them moving and keep them guessing.

floor, then using the bunny footprints, they created a trail in the talcum
In the lounge Tony not only placed carrots at strategic points, but also
gnawed them to look like the rabbits had been there. One neat touch
was to leave a spilt saucer of milk in the kitchen.
This Easter bunny scene was so realistic that on Easter Sunday morning
their children Ken and Lizzy rushed into our bedroom, screaming: 'the Easter
bunny has been'.
Over the years the story has been relived and embellished, 20 years on I
am not sure who is the more embarrassed the parents, or the now grown-up
