You missed some of the really tough ones that only major supporters of Easter would know, but this score is still nothing to shake your head - or should we say, fluffy tail - at. You proved you've gone on an Easter egg hunt once or twice in your life, and we hope you enjoy this Easter as much as all the others!

Wow! Very few people are as educated as you are when it comes to Easter - from both a religious and non-religious perspective. Easter is a holiday that a lot of people celebrate, even those who aren't devoutly religious, so being able to know the facts on both sides is quite impressive. Great work!
