Number of eggs at SCV Eggstravaganza trumps the White House Easter party

By Nikolas Samuels

Last update: Sunday, April 16th, 2017

The White House has a long tradition of Easter parties known as the Easter Egg Roll, dating back to 1876.

From current Press Secretary Sean Spicer dressing up as the Easter Bunny in 2008 to orders of tens of thousands of eggs—The White House has always gone all out with their Easter party.

Although, this year, the Santa Clarita Valley Eggstravaganza can take pride in beating out The White House in the number of eggs that had to be hunted down.

At this year’s Eggstravaganza, children scrounged for some 20,000 eggs, which is 10 percent more than the White House ordered this year. The White House only ordered 18,000 eggs this year, compared to the 37,000 eggs that the Obama Administration ordered, as a Politico article pointed out.

One advantage that The White House had with their eggs is that they are all covered in pastel colors and golds. They also act as excellent souvenirs for a visit to The White House.

So, let’s see if the Santa Clarita Valley can continue to keep up with the White House. The community will just have to wait until next year to find out.

    HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE !!

  • Ron Bischof

    Does anyone else find this comparison rather bizarre? It seems passing strange to politicize Easter.

    • Anthony Breznican
      • Ron Bischof

        A tu quoque? Amusing.

        One is a politician. The other is a reporter.

          That’s the trouble with you alt-right hypocrites. You think you live by a separate standard of rules. Not anymore.

          • Anthony Breznican
          • Ron Bischof

            Risible nonsense in response to my points of logic.

          • Anthony Breznican

            You always resort to insults when your “argument” is punctured and fluttering around the room like a deflating balloon. Also, it’s amusing how often you try to inflate your own own “logic.” Please do more of that. Your ridiculously inflated ego is truly comical!

          • Ron Bischof

            When I point out errors in your logic, it’s not an insult, Mr. Breznican.

            You’re welcome to carry on with your lightweight trolling attempts but it’s painfully obvious you offer no serious debate.

          • Anthony Breznican

            I’m not interested in debating a hypocrite.

          • Ron Bischof

            Expected as you’ve demonstrated zero ability to engage in civilized debate.

            Perhaps you’re accustomed to eliciting emotional responses to your trolling taunts? Perusing your Disqus timeline indicates this is the case and it’s entertaining to disappoint you. 😀

          • Anthony Breznican

            Oh so delicate! So it’s “uncivilized” to point out your faulty arguments? Please spare me your tears. You were handed your hat. Accept it.

          • Ron Bischof

            Assertions aren’t facts but please continue. Your lightweight trolling may just attract an audience. Wouldn’t that be exciting for you? 😀

          • Anthony Breznican

            Facts are facts. You made an assertion about “politicizing Easter.” When I showed you how your God Emperor Trump actually politicized it, you threw a hissy fit. You can’t accept being revealed as a hypocrite. THAT is an assertion, but your fussy reactions prove it as fact.

          • Ron Bischof

            Nonsense and you obviously don’t comprehend your fallacious use of a tu quoque nor did you demonstrate that I endorsed a politician politicizing Easter. Unfortunately for you, this is fatal to your argument.

            My critique was directed at a *journalist* politicizing Easter. That you responded that a non-journalist has done so isn’t a valid justification. It’s bad form for anyone, anytime and anywhere. In my expressed opinion, it’s worse when done in a purportedly straight news piece by a journalist.

            Therefore, your “facts” are nonexistent , Mr. Breznican. Poof!

            Now onto specifics. You don’t appear to be acquainted with basic logic and that’s why you’re struggling when engaging with someone who possess that knowledge and doesn’t respond in kind to your grade school level emoting.

            Here’s a primer on the error you made:

            If you feel compelled to respond further, take a moment and manage to think critically before doing so.

          • Anthony Breznican

            You are a grown man who has spent the day having a meltdown over an Easter egg story. I just pointed out your hypocrisy at how you think President Put-Down is above criticism. It should be obvious to any kindergarten student that the President of the United States should have a greater responsibility to be mature than a local news story about an egg hunt. It must really hurt to be spanked like this in public, but you spend a lot of time on here condescending to people. So it has been a pleasure giving you back some of your medicine.

          • Ron Bischof

            Again, non-responsive to my points of logic, i.e. your fallacious use of tu quoque and your straw man that I’m defending a politician.

            Constructing and defending a cogent dispassionate argument is easy for me and I can deconstruct your flailing attempts to do so while accomplishing other tasks.

            I’ve given you several opportunities to recover but you haven’t risen to the occasion despite my calm rational efforts to assist you.

            I expect you won’t accept it, but you’re done here.

            Good day, Mr. Breznician.
