Those egg hunts are apparently more competitive than I realized, given that the fire department in one town cancelled it this year because of"unruly" behavior last year. Who knew?!
Most egg "hunts" are stupid because there's no hunting involved. They dump a bunch of eggs in an open field and a mob of kids goes pushing and shoving to grab as many as possible. They have to divide them by age, and in some cases ban parents from helping, because of bigger people getting physical on smaller people. For a few plastic eggs and some candy or toys.
