If you're looking for fun places to hunt Easter eggs and participate in holiday activities, I have some ideas. Several of Abilene's amazing churches and businesses are hosting their own Easter egg hunts and events.

While most of the venues are telling me that their events are open to the public, there are a couple that require you to either purchase tickets or register before their event.

All of the churches did tell me that you do not have to be a member of their congregation to participate. Parents, children, and everyone else is invited to Easter Sunday church services as well as the festive Easter events.

With the holiday spirit in the air, it’s the perfect time to dive into the history of iconic holiday gifts. Using national toy archives and data curated by The Strong from 1920 to today, Stacker searched for products that caught hold of the public zeitgeist through novelty, innovation, kitsch, quirk, or simply great timing, and then rocketed to success.
