White House Easter Egg Roll Monday

Egg Roll!!!!

(info via Wiki)
In the United States, the Easter Egg Roll is an annual event, and is held on the White House South Lawn each Easter Monday for children and their parents.
The Egg Roll itself is a race, where children push an egg through the grass with a long-handled spoon.[8] Surrounding events include appearances by White House personalities in Easter Bunny costumes, speeches and book-reading by Cabinet secretaries, and exhibits of artistically-decorated eggs.
According to tradition,[9] Dolley Madison, the wife of President James Madison, began the event in 1814 and hundreds of children brought their decorated eggs to join in games. The original site was on the grounds of the United States Capitol, but in 1877 a new lawn was planted and the gardeners cancelled the event.[10] Congress then passed a law making it illegal to use the grounds as a children's playground.[11] At the request of a number of children, including his own, then President Rutherford B. Hayes and his wife Lucy Hayesbrought the event to the White House lawns.[12]
