Age Old Tradition Offers Egg-citing Easter Egg Hunt

By Carol A. Gasser Moore

LANIER COUNTY, Georgia – According to one historian, the first known egg hunt was hosted by Protestant reformer Martin Luther. Luther organized egg hunts for his congregation, in which men were sent to hide eggs and then women and children were sent to find them.

Regardless of who started the tradition, families and their children continue to take delight in the age old tradition.
