Easter Egg Hunt, Market Forces, and Guvmint Regulation

My experience of Easter Egg Hunts has been the big kids swoop in and garner most of the eggs. I suppose that would be letting the market decide who gets what. Prior to the hunt my granddaughter was in today though instructions were given that no child could gather more than 6 eggs. That would be government regulation of unfettered capitalism. The result was no small kids getting trampled, no crying small children, and even some sharing of eggs at the end for kids who came up a little short.

Dang parents, they got no business picking winners and losers of the Easter Egg Hunt. Those parents just discouraged future job creators.

1. they started that in my town a long time ago.

I remember when a small neighbor came back crying. that is when I started an easter egg hunt in my back yard. the girls loved it so much, they skipped the town one. It did take them a long time because I had eggs with clues and at the end the got one big prize, but no candy. They were mini ice skaters and they were not allowed candy. usually something like a hula hoop or beanie baby. I did it by making them find the egggs in order - each egg had a clue in it to where the egg was - sometimes in their yard, sometimes in mine
