No Easter eggs in Seattle, instead “spring spheres”

It had to be a rumor. On the Internet, there were reports that Easter eggs are now banned in Seattle schools.

Well, it turns out that a 16-year-old high school student identified only as “Jessica” told a Seattle radio talk-show host of her experience as a volunteer in a third-grade class at a local elementary school, which she chose not to identify.

Jessica told KIRO Radio host Dori Monson that a week before spring break, her private high school’s students commit to a week-long community service project. She decided to volunteer in a third grade class at a nearby public school


“At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that,” Jessica told Monson’s radio listeners.

“She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs,” reports Stephanie Klein of, a Seattle news site.

“I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay,” Jessica explained. “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”

Rather than question the decision, Jessica opted to “roll with it.”

But the third graders had other ideas.

“When I took them out of the bag, the teacher said, ‘Oh look, spring spheres.'”

However, the kids weren’t fooled.

“All the kids were like ‘Wow, Easter eggs.'” said Jessica. 

“So they knew.”

    It is a Crime what the governments(local, state, and federal) are trying to do to Christianity, even our holidays. However, the Bible said it would happen so I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. Even so, God bless the USA! Granny Pat

    Of course the Easter Bunny exists, nnmns. Who else gave me Cadbury Cream Eggs every year as a child? For some reason he stopped around high school though.

    How stupid !!! This whole article is really stupid. Eggs stand for new life. Sure, it is a “pagan belief” with the bunny and eggs, but we Christians understand the whole concept. Thank God !! Even a Jew would call them Easter eggs. Why should Christians bow to government regulations that are pure crap ?? I despise reading such junk.

    Really Seattle.There is no such thing as spring sphere’s. Hard boiled eggs that are dyed in spring are and will always be called Easter eggs. The teachers are only fooling themselves that they can change the name. We all (even the kids) know what they are.

    I don’t believe that we as people even who confess Christ can even care about Easter eggs God or Jesus doesn’t. I don’t want to offend but, it is time out for soft Christians going along with the world. We are to be of this world not in it.
    Easter has nothing to do with Christ or his resurrection nor does any bunnies lets stand upfor Christ in everything and everywhere we go.

    ” Spring Spheres ” ( The PC crowd sure picks some bland, lame names ), Easter Eggs – The kids will always know the difference. Personally, I think the whole issue is SILLY. & the ” Easter Egg ” & the ” Easter Rabbit ” are Pagan symbols that got borrowed by early Christians, anyway, making this whole situation TRULY SILLY.

    This is a situation where the students became the teacher. If you consider the source you would find these type of people have no life beyond the trivial things that bring them attention. Students A plus, teacher F minus.

    it is a misrepresentation to allow Easter eggs to coincide with the resurrection of Yeshua.
    Why can’t we live honestly? Eggs are the paganism.
    We aren’t to worship Ishtar the goddess of fertility
    Of course they are simply colored eggs!
    We can make them any time of year and fill them with candy anytime of year!
