WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, have kicked off the first White House Easter Egg Roll since before the coronavirus pandemic, welcoming 30,000 kids and adults for the all-day event.
Under rainy skies Monday, the president encouraged one young egg-roller, coaching the child, “Go. You got it.”
Jill Biden turned the South Lawn into a school community and dubbed the event an “egg-ucation roll.”
The first lady says she wants this Easter Egg Roll to honor “The determined spirit of education.”
The COVID-19 pandemic led the White House to cancel the Easter Egg Roll in 2020 and 2021.
But coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths have eased.
