FACTS:-White House Easter Egg Roll takes place on the South Lawn. Weather permitting, the White House Easter Egg Roll has been held every Monday after Easter on the South Lawn except during WWI and WWII, when it was held at other locations. For the egg roll race, kids push the eggs through the grass with spoons. The event is open for children 13 and younger, and their families. 1876 Congress approves the Turf Protection Act, preventing the grounds of the Capitol from being used "as playgrounds." 1878 - President Rutherford B. Hayes hosts the first White House Easter Egg Roll.
-1953 - President Dwight D. Eisenhower revives the Easter egg roll. It was suspended in 1942 because of World War II and later, a White House renovation.
-CUE THE MUSIC: Eleven years after the Easter Egg Roll became a White House tradition, President Benjamin Harrison added music in 1889. The United States Marine Band, also known as "The President's Own," played as children romped on the South Lawn. Band director John Philip Sousa, composer of "The Star Spangled Banner," enjoyed treating them to rousing marches as they scampered about. He honored the occasion of the Easter Egg Roll with his composition, "Easter Monday on the White House Lawn," in 1929.
-FIRST EGG RACES: President Richard Nixon and first lady Patricia Nixon hosted the first egg roll races in 1974. They have become an Easter Monday favorite.
-NO EGG ROLL: World War I and food rationing put the event on hold, scrambling it from 1917-1920. Egg rollers returned to the Capitol in 1942, from which they had been banished 64 years earlier, in 1878. World War II stopped the festivities again from 1943-1945.
-President Gerald Ford resumed the tradition of presidential appearances at the Easter Egg Roll in 1976 -- making him the first chief executive to do so since Eisenhower played host in 1960. President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, attended every egg roll of their eight years in the White House.
-President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan arranged a hunt for wooden eggs printed with the signatures of famous people. Wooden eggs soon became the official White House Easter Egg Roll keepsake.
-In 1969, a member of Patricia Nixon's staff put on a white fleece costume with ears, and so was born the tradition of an official White House Easter Bunny. When the event was canceled in 1984 because of rain, Reagan's staff -- led by the wife of Attorney General Edwin Meese, wearing a disguise -- organized a tour through the White House as consolation. Goody bags also were distributed.
