FARGO – Saturday’s sunny skies and mild temperatures were welcomed at the 25th annual Easter Egg-stravaganza at The Children’s Museum at Yunker Farm.
“Having a beautiful day, finally, to celebrate spring and Easter is wonderful,” said Museum Director Yvette Nasset. “You couldn’t ask for a better day.”
It started two decades ago as a small, around-the-house egg hunt for the grandkids. After a few years, when Wally Wittenburg started to notice the parents doing more than their fair share of the hunting, he upped the ante, turning the event into a scavenger hunt that spanned the breadth of the town.
Jane Ahlin raised a significant issue in her column on Easter Sunday when she quoted a question from her 4-year-old granddaughter about the relationship of the Easter bunny and eggs to Jesus’ crucifixion. Leaving that problem aside, I would like to pick up on the idea that Easter takes its name from a pagan goddess.

It happens every year. Easter arrives just as my craving for hard-cooked eggs comes to a peak. Just before Easter, I boil a bunch of eggs. Sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren often dip them into colored water and decorate the eggs with crayons and stickers. For most of them, the joy comes from the decorating, not from the eating of those multicolored eggs.
Floods, blizzards, fires and faith. Of all, faith endures. Of all, faith can be immeasurably important in overcoming the pain and loss caused by floods, blizzards and fires. Of all, faith is renewed for Christians on Easter morning. If faith is strong, no natural disaster can break the human spirit.
