Throwback Thursday "Easter Egg Roll "


I cannot believe next weekend is Easter! Time just flies by it seems. This cute photo is from 1936 with the amazing and inspirational Eleanor Roosevelt. 

In the 1870s, Capitol Hill had become a popular spot for children to roll eggs - and themselves - down the hill on Easter Monday. As the event grew more popular, the toll on the grounds was noticeable. In 1876, Congress passed a law forbidding the Capitol grounds to be used as a children's playground. In 1878, President Rutherford B. Hayes issued an order that if any children should come to the White House to roll their Easter eggs, they would be allowed to do so. The tradition has been carried on since, and has grown into the major event you can experience today.

One of my favorite Eleanor Roosevelt quotes: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. "
