You Are Never Too Old For An Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunts are not just for kids. They allow adults to reconnect with their inner child.

Easter has always been serious business in my family. Even as a kid I preferred Easter over Christmas. For once, there wasn’t that scary GDR Santa, but it also seemed a lot less stressful. One year it snowed on Easter Sunday and the adults chased the cat through the yard, so they could tell me the Easter Bunny left his traces. You could also see footprints leading to all the hidden treasures. As a good kid you play along with that. Adults are allowed to have fun, too.

The years went on and we never stopped the Easter Egg Hunts. Naturally, you run through the garden like a maniac trying to get most of the chocolate eggs. Finally, there came the time when we put on Easter Egg Hunts for our offspring. Oh, how eggciting to hide eggs well! One time in Australia we just went nuts. The kids there are very aware not to dig around stones and shrubs, then comes Easter. How the kids actually make it to adulthood without being killed by snakes or spiders there is beyond me.

Since we don’t have a garden available, we will go hunting in the park. We’ll wear our bunny ears and probably hide eggs twice. At least. While I won’t be ashamed at all, my better half will very likely bring a book and pretend not to have fun. Don’t take life all too seriously. It’s a time of the year when adults can feel like little kids again and leave their jobs and roles behind for a while.

Are you going on an Easter Egg Hunt?

Enjoy your long weekend. Happy Holidays!

  1. Love the photo of the rabbit shadow in the park… though I couldn’t help think of the film Donnie Darko ๐Ÿ˜Ž Love the Covid-type egg pic too ๐Ÿ˜‚

    We always have an indoor egg hunt for the youngest, but this year was cancelled because we pre-brought the mini hiding eggs from a well-known brand that later had a recall due to salmonella issues… yeuch!

    So no hidey eggs this year, just a few selection boxes and some choc rabbits ๐Ÿ˜

    1. Oh no, I’ve read about that! I’ve been struck once, it’s nothing you’d wish on anybody… Makes for a crap time.
      Now I really want to watch Donnie Darko. One fine movie ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŒท

      1. I haven’t seen that in ages! Good soundtrack, too.
        It’s been years but that easily takes 4 weeks of your life away. No fun. At all. But hey, I’m still here, all good. I have to admit though that ever since I’m crazy careful with eggs ๐Ÿ˜…

      2. Yes… eggs and chicken… have to be so careful. But even salad can carry bad bacteria if its been washed in cruddy water! Ouch, 4 weeks recovery is a long time. Glad you survived ๐Ÿ˜

        Yeah, the soundtrack to DD is just brilliant. So glad the movie became a cult classic considering it didn’t do so well on its original release.

    2. Oh no! Poor kid. Funny with the degrees of separation. You read it on the news and end up knowing someone effected. Hopefully Easter was fun anyways!
      Salmonella is pretty crap by the way

      1. Season 6, episode 7. Tara, Gilles & Spike nail it! Joss Whedon in it’s prime. It’s called Once more with feeling and really worth watching. Not quite Dirty Dancing but a pure Marble in the Buffyverse ๐Ÿงก

      1. Glad you liked it Jeanine. I tried to get it without the flag behind which was tricky. Mr. Gnome and his bunny were at the same place that had the gnome garden. Maybe they’re from the same family?

  2. An Easter egg hunt sounds like fun and have it in the park if you need to but don’t stop doing fun things once you’re an adult. Adults can be stuffy and no fun – stay young at heart Jeanine and Happy Easter!

  3. I always liked Easter egg hunts. One of the towns near us is having a hunt for agates, thundereggs, and painted rocks (plus plastic eggs).

    1. Oh thank you heaps! I meant to go more structured but I don’t like those “10 reasons why adults SHOULD go Easter Egg hunting … Happy long weekend!
