Excuse me, President Trump? Please don't forget about Easter. It's on Sunday. You know ... this Sunday.
Now people might be thinking to themselves, "of course the President of the United States isn't going to completely forget about a holiday," but we have genuine cause for concern, because Trump's administration literally had to be reminded to order Easter eggs for this year's Egg Roll.
Ugh, for the love of all things pastel! Please don't mess this up.
The White House Easter Egg Roll is an annual tradition of good friendly fun that has spanned the course of 138 years, but for some odd reason Trump's administration doesn't really seem to care.
White House staffers were so late to order eggs this year that Wells Wood Turning, the company that usually supplies commemorative wooden eggs for the Egg Roll had to remind them of the deadline via Twitter.
Towards the end of February, Wells Wood Turning sent a tweet to the president, first lady, and first daughter, Ivanka, reminding them that the manufacturing deadline for the beloved eggs was drawing near, and asking them to reach out if they were still interested in ordering for the event.

The New York Times reported that by early March, the White House announced that they would be holding the annual Egg Roll celebration, and followed up to Wells Wood Turning with a "rush order" for the classic wooden eggs.
Okay, so the eggs were ordered, but we're not out of the woods yet. The Times also explained that signs of a late start to planning point to a smaller gathering. Yikes.
While exciting entertainment like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Idina Menzel have performed at past Egg Rolls, we've seen no braggadocios Trump tweets that give us cause to think he has anything big planned.
Sure, White House officials reportedly did not respond to "several weeks’ worth of inquiries" about the Egg Roll, but perhaps the simple oversights are due to the fact that Trump has direct access to the Easter Bunny — his press secretary, Sean Spicer — and therefore, figured all of his Easter egg needs were taken care of.

But despite the delay in egg ordering, the lack of press, and rumors of smaller crowds, we're sure President Trump will claim this to be the most successful Easter in the history of Easters.
