History Behind the Hunt
Learn about the tradition of the Easter egg hunt.
Early Christian missionaries hid Easter eggs painted with biblical scenes for children to find. The children would find the Easter eggs and tell the story associated with the paintings. Therefore, early Easter egg hunts helped children learn about the significance of Easter. The hunt symbolizes the joy and excitement of the spring season.
