Cadbury drops “Easter” from egg hunt

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