„Our Easter events include our partnership with Cadbury, which has been running Easter Egg Hunts with us for 10 years,” the spokesperson added. „They’ve proved consistently popular with our members and visitors. As part of its wider marketing activity at Easter, Cadbury will always lead on the branding and wording for its campaigns.”
Then Theresa May weighed in and shared some very strong opinions about it. She condemned the decision to drop the word „Easter” from the egg hunt, and called it „absolutely ridiculous”.
„I’m not just a vicar’s daughter – I’m a member of the National Trust as well,” the prime minister told ITV News. „I think the stance they’ve taken is absolutely ridiculous and I don’t know what they’re thinking about.
„Easter’s very important. It’s important to me, it’s a very important festival for the Christian faith for millions across the world. So I think what the National Trust is doing is frankly just ridiculous.”
