President Trump, first lady Melania set date for 139th Easter Egg Roll

After some speculation otherwise, the White House Easter Egg Roll will continue under the Trump administration.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump announced on Wednesday that the annual event, dating back to 1878, will take place the day after Easter on April 17.

"The President and First Lady are honored to continue the traditions of the past," said an official statement on Wednesday, "while weaving new traditions into the fabric of our Nation's history."

Rumors have been swirling that Trump may add the Easter bunny to his list of bucked trends by skipping the egg roll entirely. The Washington Post reported last month that at the time "no one has heard that any of the work is being done" needed to put the long-time event together.

Looks like the egg roll is one egg Trump will leave uncracked.

The president has already made rejecting certain White House traditions a habit during his short time in office. In February, Trump announced that he'll be skipping the White House Correspondents' Association dinner in the spring; an annual black-tie dinner often attended by both leaders in the press and the president.

Tickets for the White House Egg Roll will be free and distributed to families with children 13 and younger through a lottery system.
