The "Third Annual Festival of Eggs" began shortly after midnight on April 8, 2012. Like last year the event was set for 3 days and therefore ended on April 10 at 23:59:59.
If a user already got a basket at one of the previous "Festival of Eggs" events, the new eggs would be placed in there too but separated by a border.
If members couldn't participate the event in 2010 and 2011, they got the chance to get an Easter basket badge by joining the "Third Annual Festival of Eggs" in 2012. A lot of the newer users were confused, since when they hovered their cursor over the little basket badge it would read "Easter Basket - 2010 Festival of Eggs". That's because the images of the 2010 basket badges were also getting used for the following "Festival of Eggs" events.
There were 42 eggs in total to collect in 2012 and like before, there was no reward for collecting them all.
