    That’s all right, Ellie will save the day. Funny how eggs are
    symbolic of new beginnings, isn’t it? Appropriate, for
    the time of resurrection.

    I appreciate the way our church does egg hunts. First off, it’s indoors (we ARE in New England). The 3 and under kids get to search in the Children’s Church room. The 4-7 year olds get the main sanctuary and main hall (with a few other rooms). The 7-12 year olds get the third floor. This gives every age group a chance to find SOME eggs.

    Most people live life like that, Lizzie.

    I always loved the egg hunt, it was so much fun to find the eggs but once I grew up it was even more fun to hide them. I remember when I was maybe 8 or 9 we had a family reunion on Easter sunday and they were going to do an egg hunt, all the moms decided to wrap the eggs in foil rather than color them, that way they would stay clean, only problem was the sun came out and all the eggs were visible like diamonds in the grass, lol…….no eggs were forgotten that year.
    Happy Easter to all.

    They would put some eggs out in plain site and told the older kids not to get them, then they would take the little ones by the hand and walk them right to them.

    We used to do egg hunts at my folks’ house with all of the grandkids (13 of them). We would hide the eggs all over the yard & gardens for the kids, then they would turn the tables on us. We would wait in the house while they hid the eggs for us and we would hunt them. Each kid “graduated” from the kid group to the adult group around the time they got a bit too creative in their hiding places or age 16 whichever came first.

    My favorite Easter joke

    There’s a parish with an old priest, Father Dominic, and a young priest,
    Father Jack. Father Jack, being modern and somewhat eclectic, was in the
    habit of going out into the church graveyard at dawn to meditate. One
    Easter morning he was doing that, when suddenly the doors of a tomb in
    front of him burst open, and Jesus came out of the tomb, and started
    walking toward the young priest. Then, just as suddenly, Jesus turned
    around and ran back into the tomb. The doors slammed shut.

    Father Jack was overcome by this vision, or visitation, or whatever it
    was. He ran inside and awakened Father Dominic, told him what he’d seen,
    and asked the older priest what he thought it meant. Father Dom said he
    didn’t know, but immediately called the Archbishop to ask him. The
    Archbishop didn’t want to speculate on that either, and said he’d consult
    the Vatican.

    Meanwhile, it was time for Easter morning mass. Father Jack asked Father
    Dom if he should tell the congregation about his vision. Father Dom said
    he didn’t think there would be any harm in that, so, at an appropriate
    time in the mass, Father Jack told what he’d seen.

    He then continued, “I don’t know what this vision means, but the Vatican
    has been informed of it, and as soon as they tell us what it means, I’ll
    relay that meaning to you.”

    Suddenly, there came a voice from the rear of the church. “I know what it
    means.” It was an old neighborhood drunk. He’d been drinking already that
    morning, and was barely able to stand, but he managed to.

    “I know what it means. I’ll tell ya all what it means.”

    Shocked, the congregation listened in silence.
    “It means we’re gonna have six more weeks of Lent.”

    Good line from The Sopranos:
    Meadow: “How come you leave the house at odd hours?” Tony: “Don’t you think Dr. Cusamano leaves his house in the middle of the night for an emergency?”
    Meadow: “Did Dr. Cusamano’s children find a submachine gun and $50,000 in gold coins when they were looking for Easter Eggs?”
