But there was hope among Snapchatters that the Easter Egg Hunt would return in 2021, seeing as a rejigged version was held in 2020.
Last year’s take on the Snapchat Egg Hunt saw Snapchatters being able to go on an Egg Hunt without leaving their front door.
However, Snapchat has now revealed that they’re taking “a break” from the Snapchat Easter Egg Hunt in 2021.
Replying to one Snapchatter who asked if an Egg Hunt was taking place this year, the @snapchatsupport Twitter posted: “Hi!
