It's Easter weekend, where the formality of religious church services combine with the informality of traditional Easter Egg Hunts.
Just for fun, we wondered how many kids, and for that matter, adults, know what's behind the tradition of the Easter egg hunt? If you know, please leave your answer in the comments. (We had to look it up ourselves.)
Here's a quick rundown of the hunts we're aware of on the Peninsula, mostly scheduled for Saturday:
