The tradition of rolling Easter eggs at the White House dates back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes decided to open the White House on the Monday after Easter to any youngsters who wished to roll eggs for the holiday.

During the 1981 presidential campaign, President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan organized a hunt for wooden eggs emblazoned with the autographs of celebrities.

Wooden eggs quickly gained popularity as the official White House Egg Roll memento. Designed to reflect the year’s unique theme, the eggs are imprinted with the signatures of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.



The White House’s South Lawn will be filled with hundreds of youngsters on Monday for the annual Easter Egg Roll.

In honour of First Lady Jill Biden’s long career as an educator, the theme of the 2022 Easter Egg Roll is “EGGucation.

” A schoolhouse activity area, a library, a talent show, and photo days will be included in this year’s event in addition to the traditional egg hunt.

This year’s Official White House Easter Egg Set comprises red, orange, yellow, and purple eggs with an impression of the White House South Portico adorned with Easter eggs and the president and first lady’s signatures.

Biden’s blue egg comes with a set, and it has a special Easter Bunny imprint with images of dog commander and cat Willow (the First Pets), as well as their paw prints.
