White House Easter Egg Roll
The custom of the Easter Egg Roll in this country got started when John Payne Todd, son of President James Madison and his wife Dolly, told his mother that children of ancient Egypt rolled eggs outside the pyramids. While that bit of historical trivia cannot be proven, a White House Easter Egg Roll has taken place, usually on the South Lawn, since the fourth presidency. Humpty Dumpty has been known to make an appearance at the annual Easter Egg Roll.
