Easter Egg Hunt — Win a MyHeritage DNA kit!


Easter is an exciting time of year — the weather improves, flowers begin to bloom, and we see the first signs of new life and rebirth in nature. It’s also an excellent opportunity to spend quality time with your family.

When I was a kid, I used to celebrate this sweetest of the holidays at my grandparents’ home, with all my aunts, uncles and cousins. My grandma would cook a nice meal, almost always lamb, and my mother would organize an Easter hunt.

She used to hide Easter eggs all over the garden. This was a huge garden, so she had to place tips for us kids to look for them. Secretly I think this helped her as well. One year, when she didn’t write the tips, we didn’t find all the eggs, and my grandfather was finding eggs while mowing the lawn until September!

Our hunt started with the footsteps of the Easter Bunny, which my mother carefully created on the kitchen floor using flour. We had to follow the footprints to find the first clue and then the hunt would take most of the morning. My grandfather, my father, and uncles used to help us kids, and it was so much fun.

When we were ready, we used to place all the chocolate on a table in the living room, so that the smallest among us kids would also get a nice amount of chocolate. Another pile was meant to be given to some neighbors, who we knew wouldn’t get anything at all. My parents and grandparents always made sure to remind us about the meaning of the holidays.

I think that one of the most valuable aspects of the holidays is the extra time we get to spend with our families, creating memories to be cherished for years to come.

Many of our readers will have probably hunted multiple Easter eggs over the years. This Easter, we’re putting you to work, on another type of Easter Egg Hunt for a chance to win a MyHeritage DNA kit! we’ve hidden this Easter image in three old blog posts on the MyHeritage blog and we’ll give you clues to find them.

Here are the clues for our three hidden Easter eggs:

    1. This post is about family crafts that can be done with children over a specific holiday.
    2. This post may be our longest blog post ever! It is a blog post introducing our new online tree editor.
    3. This blog post explains what happens to your DNA sample once it reaches the MyHeritage DNA lab.

Try your luck at our online scavenger hunt. Put your research skills to the test and send us your answers, links to the blog posts, to stories@myheritage.com by Good Friday, April 14, 2017. Good luck.
