Happy Easter everyone! The first Sunday after the first full moon on or after March 21st Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, this festival is called Easter as you no doubt know. Non-religious Easter traditions include eating chicken or chocolate Easter Eggs as a popular sign of the holiday.

The first ever Easter Egg was put in 1979’s Atari 2600 action-adventure single player game “Adventure”. Find out how its creator, Warren Robinett, seeking credit led to the first in-game hidden secret.
