Easter Egg Hunts at Lake of the Ozarks

When you think of the Easter holiday, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? For many children, that answer would be Easter egg hunts! Who doesn't love finding candy, money and other little treats hidden inside colorful eggs that you have to search for? It's a great tradition, but have you ever thought about how it started? Lake of the Ozarks' best roofing company brings you a little history on the Easter egg hunt, as well as a list of places you can take your children to hunt for eggs this weekend!

History of Easter Egg Hunts

Folklore suggests that Easter egg hunts arose in Europe during "the Burning Times," when the rise of Christianity led to the shunning of the followers of the "Old Religion." Instead of giving the eggs as gifts, the adults made a game of hiding them, gathering the children together and encouraging them to find the eggs. Some believe that the authorities seeking to find the "heathens" would follow or bribe the children to reveal where they found the eggs so that the property owner could be brought to justice. Therefore, the hunts were often moved to public property and held as a community event.
