With hearts and lights illuminating windows and doorways across Greater Victoria as residents stay inside to avoid spreading COVID-19, a new Easter game is rising up.
As the provincial direction to self-isolate and practise physical distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 continues toward Easter, the #yyjegghunt2020 appears underway according to a tweet attributed to the Rutledge lending library in the Saanich park of the same name.

The community book-lending box was outfitted with a plastic bag of colourful two-dimensional eggs and a baggie of instructions this week.
“Let’s come together to create fun memories with our kids and all young at heart!” reads the note.
The rules are simple, decorate a paper egg, put it in a visible window such as a home or vehicle, and look for eggs while out walking – at a safe distance of course.
Those social media inclined can post and share the photos with a #yyjegghunt2020 tag.
