EDMONDS, Wash. — This time of year, it’s a tradition across the country — excited kids going for broke looking for treasure during Easter egg hunts.
But controversy surrounds this years egg hunt in Edmonds, after a newspaper column pointed out that the city removed the name ‘Easter’ from the event.
But the city said until now, it hasn’t had a single complaint since it stopped using the word Easter 13 years ago — in 2000. The city released a statement saying, “We want to recognize and welcome all citizens to our events, regardless of faith.”
Residents had varied opinions about it, however.
