Real-Life Easter Eggs Hidden In Plain Sight

Do you know how in movies, TV shows, and video games, there are little surprises that someone in production hid for the few in the audience that would happen to look for them? Indeed, spotting an Easter egg is like finding buried treasure. It is a moment of wonder and glee for your mystery-loving inner Nancy Drew. Although real life isn’t a Doctor Who episode, there are, thankfully, still Easter eggs to stumble upon. All you ought to do is open your eyes.

Reddit, being the platform it is, has a community called In Real Life Easter Eggs (of course, it does). There, people share pictures of tiny treasures they were lucky to find in their day-to-day life. Check out this fun roundup of hidden messages most people miss in the real world.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
