Inside the Tradition of the The Easter Egg Roll Challenge Coin at the White House.

The Tradition

The Easter Egg Roll at the White House is an annual event held on the Monday after Easter Sunday. It's a tradition that dates back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes opened the White House grounds to children for egg rolling. Since then, it has become a cherished tradition for families across the United States.

During the Easter Egg Roll, children roll colored hard-boiled eggs down the White House lawn using long-handled spoons. There are also various other activities such as egg hunts, musical performances, storytelling, and sports activities organized for the families attending.

The event typically requires tickets, which are distributed through an online lottery system. The White House Easter Egg Roll is a highly anticipated event each year and is attended by thousands of families from all over the country. It's a symbol of the arrival of spring and a celebration of community and family.
