The custom of the Easter egg hunt, however, comes from Germany. Some suggest that its origins date back to the late 16th century, when the Protestant reformer Martin Luther organised egg hunts for his congregation. The men would hide the eggs for the women and children to find. This was a nod to the story of the resurrection, in which the empty tomb was discovered by women.
On April 16, Goshen’s Hermitage Farm will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt, an event for all ages. It is recommended to arrive at 10:30 a.m., with egg hunts starting at 11:00 a.m. There’ll be several egg hunts, in addition to an exclusive pop-up shop and a photo-op with the Easter Bunny.
(F&D’s Hip Hops beer columnist notes that Hermitage Farms is missing the perfect opportunity to stage a hoppy Easter Bunny beer garden)
Spots for the egg hunts are limited and cost $10 each, with all proceeds being donated to the Humane Society of Oldham County, which will be on site with adoptable friends.
