Children Delight in Annual Easter Egg Hunt

April 27, 2011 • By Deborah (Malacky) Belonick

Squealing with delight, children at the seminary participate in one of the most anticipated events of Pascha afternoon: the annual Easter egg hunt. They scout under every bush and tree, behind every rock and lightpost, to fill their baskets with multi-colored hard boiled eggs. Gathering eggs as if they were treasured jewels, the children eagerly compare their finds—"But, we don't eat the eggs," they admit. The joy of the hunt, and the joy of the Lord, is expressed in their faces.
