LONDON - The decision to drop the word "Easter" from its annual egg hunt has some people in Britain hopping mad.

Chocolate maker Cadbury is calling this year's event "Cadbury's Great British Egg Hunt.” The decade-old event sends hundreds of thousands of children hunting for eggs on historic properties across England on Easter weekend.

The confectionary giant issued a statement denying they've totally removed the word "Easter" from its marketing, but officials also say they invite "people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats."

The Church of England and Prime Minister Theresa May have issued statements criticizing the decision.
