The Easter egg hunt:

A little Easter greeting


Ein kleiner Ostergruss 01

“Easter bunny soft and white
Hopping quickly out of sight,
Thank you for the eggs you bring
At Easter time to welcome spring.

Yellow eggs and blue and red
In the grass and flower bed
We will hunt them everywhere
Is it really you who put them there?”

But where does the Easter egg hunt come from?

The Easter egg hunt is just as much a part of Easter as the colouring of the eggs. Did you know that this custom has pagan origins? Tradition has it that the eggs were originally given as gifts to honour the spring goddess Ostara, as they have always been considered a sign of fertility. The church disliked this custom and banned it. As a result, the eggs were now secretly given away, i.e. hidden.

We hope you enjoy this year’s Easter egg hunt!
