Biden’s Welcome Guests to Annual Easter Egg Roll

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden hosted the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday.

Photos show the first couple greeting guests of the event from the balcony as families descended on the south lawn.

The activity filled day had previously been on a hiatus since 2019. This year’s event was centered on the theme of “EGGucation” since first lady Jill Biden is teacher.

The President also wished Americans a Happy Easter on Sunday. “And, as we emerge from this pandemic, we are grateful that so many are able to celebrate this day of joy and renewal with services and family gatherings in person and together again. But we know this Holy Day falls on heavy hearts for those who have lost loved ones and those among us living in the dark shadow of war, persecution, and poverty,” Biden said in a statement.

“On this day and each day, we pray for them, and for peace, freedom, and the basic dignity and respect for all of God’s children. As we look ahead with His blessing, may we share a common hope for the future, reaffirm love and compassion for one another, and cherish the blessing of the dawn of new possibilities.”
