Easter Story Time and Egg Hunt

11 am, Mar 30, 2013 | free
 

The Easter egg hunt is a multi-century tradition. Originally, the egg hunt was part of a Pagan festival called Ostara, celebrated on the spring equinox, when day and night are the same length. The egg represents rebirth. Early Christians adopted this Pagan custom into an Easter tradition. The Easter bunny, however, is a 16th century German concoction. And now, after a few centuries have passed, the Easter egg hunt and the bunny have seamlessly merged together, evolving into token symbols of the pastel-colored holiday. Bee Hive Books is carrying the torch, continuing this long-lived tradition. The second annual Easter egg hunt begins with a 20-minute story-time reading. Afterward, families are invited to embark on their huevo-seeking journey, a front-yard frolic. All participants go home with a candy egg.
