A family is putting its chocolate Easter egg on display for the 83rd year in a row.
Martin Bennett is a dad of three from Wales, South Yorkshire, England.
He’s in charge of putting out the family’s Easter egg for the Christian holiday this year.

The sweet holiday treat originally belonged to his grandmother, Alice Bennett, SWNS reported.
The egg was a gift to Alice Bennett from her son, Frank, Martin Bennett’s father, in March 1940.
The gift was given to commemorate Frank Bennett’s joining the army during World War II.

Bennett said his grandmother, a mother of nine, never opened the foil-wrapped chocolate egg — she thought it was “too nice.”
Today, 83 years later, it’s a tradition in the Bennett household to display the egg each holiday season.
“It must have been quite a complicated Easter egg at the time,” he said.
