A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, software, web page or video game. The term draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt, but actually is derived by the practice of the last Russian imperial family’s tradition of giving elaborately jeweled egg-shaped creations by Faberge which usually contained hidden gifts themselves.
A few years ago, software and operating systems contained a lot of hidden Easter eggs. Because of security concerns, you won’t find many these days. However, movies are famous for having Easter eggs. You can find reference to them at several sites, such as http://www.movieweb.com/dvd/eggs/ and http://www.hiddendvdeastereggs.com/(click on the letters on top to get to the list).
Take a look at some of them and then load your movies and see if you can find them. A lot of them come up only when playing the movies on your pc but try your DVD remote and see what happens. Happy Easter.
