Searching for Eggs

When you searched for eggs as a kid, what was the method? Our eggs were always hidden in plain view (meaning not inside anything, at least part of the egg was visible) and we’d get the “hot/cold” method of hints. It worked well, giving us just enough difficulty to be challenged, but not so much that we’d be searching for eggs through the summertime.

My parents didn't hide eggs, they hid the whole damn Easter basket. I thought that was normal, but my wife asures me that it is very odd.

Oh no, my mom hid the whole basket too! I had forgotten about it until you mentioned it. I even asked my mom why we never went on Easter egg hunts, and she insists we did, back when I was 3 and incapable of forming lasting memories. After that, she just hid the baskets behind the tv or sofa, etc.

A couple years ago, my friend Jen and I hid the eggs for her nieces and nephews all over her parents' property, and from what I understand, they are STILL finding those eggs!

When I was growing up, we didn't do much of that but now with my own family we make a day of it. We make up special candy bags and hide them along with plastic eggs filled with everything from candy to money. We hide them everywhere and in anything. We have a few eggs with numbers on them that who ever finds them gets a new t-shirt or night gown or some type of present. We spend more on treasure hunting than we spend on Christmas. It's an all day event with BBQ, games and in the evening, relaxing and playing board games. We have been doing that for over 20 years and it has become a tradition. Now that I have my first granddaughter, we are looking forward to a very small one looking for prizes.

Our baskets were hidden. In the dryer, up high on shelves.... It was always a long process to find the baskets. Let the 'rents sleep in, while we hunted and got hopped up on sugar....

What is this then?
