This is what is now known as a “bear hunt.” Other cities throughout the country are joining together for this “hunt.” A Hampton resident, Candy Calloway, started this trend after seeing it online in Little Rock. It gives kids in the community an opportunity to get out of the house without leaving the vehicle. You drive around neighborhoods and search for teddy bears in people’s houses.

Many of these early Easter eggs were crafted out of silver and gold, and while not as delicious as the chocolate variety, they were quite valuable.
