    In honor of easter, what's the most original place you've ever hidden an easter egg or found one when you were younger?  big_smile

      My grandfather hid a few on top of the clothes line one year. It took forever for us to find them... and then figure out a way to reach them lol

      I've always found that the ones hidden in plain sight are hard to find.

      When I was a kid, I loved to visit my friend Lois. Her family had a large, elegant house with a music room. One hot spring day, she and I were in the music room wanting to play the piano, but the room stank of that sulfur smell that belongs to rotten eggs. We both went looking for the source, and found one colored Easter egg resting inside the lid of the baby grand and another on the floor behind the floor-to-ceiling draperies surrounding the bowed windows.  Funny thing...Lois was Jewish. Just goes to show what a non-denominational tradition the Easter egg hunt is in this country.

        lol We never used real eggs, thank goodness, because it seemed that we would always find a few leftover from Easter a few months later big_smile

    Here in Australia I never knew we were supposed to hide them. Is it a tradition over there to hide them?. Wow awesome.

      What? Here in the US at least, the big thing was to "Hunt" for the Easter eggs.
      My older sister used to wake me up early on Easter morning to find the baskets, the eggs and the candy-- then to re-hide them before our parents got up, so we would find everything in different places from where the "bunny" had hidden them originally.

      yeah, supposedly the Easter Bunny comes and hides them. we also have this thing called egg rolling where people roll eggs with sticks and i have no idea where that one comes from. no one does it here in the Southwest though...must be a southern thing big_smile

      'k, i have hidden eggs in flowerpots, under the Weber lid, in shrubs, in birdbaths and fountains and in the trunk of my son's toy car, oh and the mailbox, to name a few. one he never found was stuck in a windhime so it looked like part of the sculpture...

    we have an easter egg hunt every year. it's great fun for the whole family. that is if your whole family doesn't sit around drinking while the kids are looking through the house and yard. the kids wind up being the laughter for the adults sipping wine coolers. i no longer participate in my family's traditions. i just stay home all day staring at the walls and talking to all of you. that may become my new tradition. lol

    My kids are grown now but I always just hid the Easter Basket, one year I hid clues all over the house and the kids had to follow the clues to their baskets.

    I still yet do not know why eggs are hidden. Is it a custom in US?

    1. Stevennix2001 profile image83
      Stevennix2001posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      pretty much.  you see here in the usa. it's a tradition to tell  kiddies that the easter bunny will hop along and hide  eggs and various other goodies around the house and/or other places, and the kids will run out to find them all day.  it's kind  of the same schtick with santa clause, if you catch my drift.

    Oh, didn't answer your question...small chocolate eggs wrapped in foil hidden in the dogs' dishes with all their kibble.  Dog's guarded their dishes and wouldn't let anyone except my
    own kids near them.  big_smile

    Another place:  on top of the door sill (or jamb...or frame...or whatever that thing is called again).  Those sat up there for a long time.  I think one or two have been recycled for a few years.  lol  (just kidding about that last little bit)  lol

    When I was a kid, my mom boiled 2 dozen eggs - 1 dozen each for my sister and I, and we hid them for each other changing rooms every year.  Since there was a dozen each, we never lost any  lol.  Let's see, where did we hide them?  In the couch, chair, behind the tv, in the stereo, on top of the fridge, in the lamps, on the china cabinet, on the window sills - anywhere they would fit!  Even better if the color matched, so they would be harder to see.  smile

    Well he's 20 now but we still hide his basket! We are very creative! We sometimes hide it in a closet on a hanger under a coat. We've done the dryer, his equipment bag, the roof, his car, his friends house, his shower, the intake for the air, a chair under the diningroom table pushed in, my office, my truck, my wifes car, the back fence and behind his backboard. Just to mention a few but, we kept it age appropriate. Our son has said to us,"You two are wrong!" Last couple of years he'll get up and just look at us then ask," Are we still going to play this stupid game?" We say ask the rabbit, then it's on!smile

    On the BBQ Grill. 

    We have a yearly tradition at our house. We hide the eggs (plastic kind) outside in the yard, each egg has a small amount of change inside.  We count the eggs and then divide it by the amount of children doing the hunt, so each child gets the same number of eggs.  Once one child is done looking, they may help the others if they want help.
