White House Annual Easter Egg Roll
U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump host the annual Easter Egg Roll Monday on the South Lawn of the White House.
People attending the event won their tickets through a public lottery held in February.
The White House says the day will be "filled with family activities."
As part of the festivities, children and families usually push wooden eggs across the White house lawn using oversized spoons.
The White House Easter Egg Roll has a long tradition, dating back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes hosted the first one.
There were no egg rolls between 1917 to 1920 because of World War One. Similarly, during World War Two, no egg rolls were held from 1943 to 1945.
Food conservation efforts and then construction on the White House also brought a halt to the celebrations from 1946 to 1952.
However, President Dwight Eisenhower reinstated the White House Easter Egg Roll in 1953.
Remaining pieces of defunct Tiangong-1 drop into South Pacific
A defunct Chinese space lab met its expected end early Monday morning as its remaining fragments plunged into the South Pacific.
China's Manned Space Engineering Office said the Tiangong-1 spacecraft "mostly" burned up in the atmosphere.
Any pieces that failed to disintegrate during the fiery trip back to Earth fell harmlessly into the ocean.
It took about two hours for the craft burn up once it hit Earth's atmosphere.
There had been predictions parts of the space lab would land in the South Atlantic with some pieces posing a very small threat to people on the ground
Tiangong-1 was the size of a school bus and weighed eight and a half tons.
Tiangong-1 was the largest man-made object to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere in a decade.
It was launched in 2011 and served as an orbiting laboratory for manned Chinese space missions until officials determined its lifespan was complete. It was taken out of service in 2016.
