A tradition observed on Easter Monday are games of egg rolling. The event takes different shapes in different countries, from pushing eggs with spoons to rolling them down slopes or hills, in a competition to see whose egg rolls furthest. The eggs are usually hard-boiled and often painted or decorated. In the United States, an Easter Egg Roll takes place on the White House South Lawn annually on Easter Monday. Children up to the age of 13 compete in pushing eggs through the grass with long-handled spoons.
Easter Monday is a public holiday in many countries but not in the United States.
