Easter is a holiday that celebrates Spring with events that include mythical bunnies hiding eggs in the grass. In California the spring ritual of the egg hunt takes on many forms. Sometimes the kids have to look in the snow. In some cities in California the kids dive into a swimming pool for an egg hunt. And at the beach, they might have to look in the sand. But most California Egg Hunts happen on beautiful, green grass lawns. The smaller towns still have eggs filled with prizes. Big cities sometimes just dump candy on the grass and call it an egg hunt, though it is really just an event to run and pick up candy.
