tirinian and I had our traditional Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday. As always, we overstocked on candy (especially jelly beans), but the hunt itself was fun. The more recent addition of "bagels at Kith's while we hide the eggs" is a good one, especially as the more eggs we aquire, the longer it takes to hide them.

It's funny, though - people are still very amused to hunt for eggs, but the proportion of people who eventually leave all their candy behind is increasing. That certainly makes sense to not want so much candy as we did when we were kids, but it's an odd quirk of the psyche, to hunt so hard for something you don't actually want.

mjperson mentions the little girl who was watching enviously from a nearby porch. Oops. Last year there were a couple of little kids playing in the park, and we invited them (by way of their parents) to hunt too, but said parents declined due to the kids having gotten quite enough candy already. So we didn't mean to taunt her, we just didn't see her until most of the eggs were found.
