The First Family hosted the 137th annual White House Easter Egg Roll under sunny skies and summer-like temperatures on Easter Monday, April 6, 2015. 35,000 guests and celebrities joined the First Family in their "back yard". This year’s theme was “#GimmeFive,” encouraging children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady's "Let's Move" initiative and featured traditional Easter activities, live music, and storytelling with the President reading from Maurice Sendak's “Where the Wild Things Are”. The President noted it was the 5 year anniversary of his wife's "Let's Move" initiative and the singing group 5th Harmony led the crowd in singing Happy Birthday. Mrs. Obama urged participants to find five new ways to lead a healthier lifestyle. The White House Egg Roll dates back to 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes.
