Barnegat Easter Egg Hunt 2018

Barnegat Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt in the Dark, Barnegat Recreation Center, 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Bring flashlights and baskets. The Easter Bunny will make an appearance. Food will be available for purchase.

The custom of an Easter egg hunt began because children believed that the Easter hare laid eggs in the grass.

Easter eggs are largely a pagan tradition, and the egg hunt is no different. Although its roots aren't totally clear, it's widely believed that egg hunts date back to the 1700s, when the Pennsylvania Dutch believed in an egg-laying hare called Oschter Haws (or Osterhase).

Because this precursor to the Easter Bunny laid eggs in the grass, children were encouraged to build nests for it to lay in — and to search for the eggs it left behind. Oschter Haws eventually became the Easter Bunny, who isn't known for its egg-laying capabilities, but the tradition of creating nests — or in the modern day, baskets — and searching for his presents stuck around.

In South German folk traditions, it was customary to add extra obstacles to the game by placing them into hard-to reach places among nettles or thorns. I wouldn’t expect it to be that difficult in Barnegat!
