WHAT IS THE WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL?
The White House Easter Egg Roll is a tradition that has spanned more than 130 years and numerous Presidents. The event is held on the South Lawn of the White House. The egg roll itself involves rolling a hard-boiled colored egg on the lawn with a large serving spoon, although the event now has many more activities for participants, such as musical groups, an egg hunt, sports, reading, cooking, and crafts, among other activities. For participating, each child is given a commemorative wooden Easter egg signed by the President and First Lady. Under current rules, a family must have at least one child 12 or under to attend. The White House Easter Egg roll is held on the Monday after Easter. The 2011 White House Easter Egg Roll is scheduled for April 25, 2011.
