The White House Easter Egg Roll to be held on April 18 at a modest scale
Under Trump administration, White House Easter Egg Roll event on Monday will be more traditional Easter and at a moderate scale this year.

It has been felt that the official egg roll had grown more of an extravagant entertainment event under the previous regime.

A White House notification stated, "Join us on Monday, April 17th, 2017, for the 139th White House Easter Egg Roll! We will be live-streaming from the South Lawn of the White House, so you can follow along with the reading nook, music stage, official egg roll, and other fun events."

The White House Easter Egg Roll event dates back to 1878 since the presidency of President Rutherford B Hayes. President Donald J Trump and First Lady Melania Trump continue the traditions of the past but with a new outlook, it seems.

The First Lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump tweeted:

Easter egg roll is a traditional game played with decorated hard boiled eggs at Easter. Different nations have different versions of playing the game.

It was in 2009, that the Obamas had hosted their first White House Easter egg roll with the theme "Let's go play" at a grand scale to encourage young people to lead healthy and active lives.
