“Easter is the only time when it’s perfectly safe to put all your eggs in one basket”

"Easter is the only time when it’s perfectly safe to put all your eggs in one basket” is a one-line saying about Easter eggs that has been printed on many images. The saying has been cited in print since at least 1968 and is of unknown authorship.
