Even though my cousins and I are all grown up, we still love Easter egg hunting. When I spent Easter with my cousins in America last year, they felt that being past the age of five meant that they were too old to look for Easter eggs. My cousins here in the Philippines are different. We’d hunt every inch of our house in the province just so we could get as many Easter eggs as possible.
Each Easter egg is filled with money, so that’s why we don’t care that this is an activity for kids. I even wanted to paint actual eggs, but my cousins laughed at me and said, “Ano ba yan, pambata naman yan.” We ended up using the plastic eggs instead.
