It’s 6:00 on Maundy Thursday morning. The sun is yet to rise, but the lights of the passenger harbor of Jätkäsaari in Helsinki illuminate dark figures who twist, turn and stretch to poses that would get an accepting nod from any yoga teacher in town.

But these guys and ladies are not out to get in their morning exercise. They are hunting for golden Easter eggs!

“I’m hoping to win the main prize,” said Oskari, 30, who had arrived in Jätkäsaari from Espoo.

This is the third time that the Norwegian hotel chain is arranging an egg hunt in Finland. For marketing? Sure. For fun? Absolutely.

Just look at these photos posted on their Facebook page of excited people, who have found a golden egg that could also contain smaller prizes like dinners and hair product samples. The hunt will officially continue till 18:00 in the evening.

Easter time fun has now officially begun.

At 08:00 half of the eggs were yet to be found.
