Easter Egg Hunt at Maxwell Place

Hoboken kids accumulate eggs in plain sight

Back when I was a kid, Easter Egg “Hunts” required a little investigative skill. You’d have to look in bushes, up in trees, behind rocks, etc. It was fun to go on the mission to find them all.

Today, about 100 parents and kids were at Maxwell Place for a different kind of Easter Egg Hunt. Here, the eggs were all in plain sight, and the kids rushed to gather as many as they could before anyone else. Sort of teaching kids an early lesson of “get the most stuff you can before you die!”

Thankfully, this lesson didn’t involve revolving debt or second mortgages. That’ll come later in life!

How you can turn something that is done for the community out of the goodness of people’s heart into something negative dumbfounds me. This isn’t done as a fund raiser, for someone to get votes, for someone to expand their church but just to be nice. A few parents pulled this together after their children received no eggs a local event and it’s grown every year for the past 4 years.
Where exactly would you hide eggs if you could? (500 eggs) I think the lesson here was to do your part to make your community a better place. Sorry, you missed that lesson.

Imagine if they charged a $25 Easter Egg Hunt recreational fee? The story would be Hoboken Hates Easter.[quote comment=”205882″]How you can turn something that is done for the community out of the goodness of people’s heart into something negative dumbfounds me.

If they actually hid the eggs, Maxwell Place residents would be complaining that the grass was ripped up by the egg hiders.

My wife helped lay the eggs down for the second year in a row. We’d love to hide the eggs, as tradition would suggest. However, there is no suitable place in Hoboken. And, any hiding place would likely be contaminated with dog piss and shit from the usual assholes, both canine and owner. Thus, we do the best we can under the circumstances. If you’d like to exercise eminent domain on a plot of land, and go plant a bunch of bushes and trees so that we can have a better Easter egg hunt, we’d be very much appreciative. However, in view of the Russo – Roberts – Russo+Castellano axis’s opposition to building anything resembling a major and proper park, this is what we have to work with.
