Santa Claus, an Easter egg in the LEGO Star Wars games

A virtual Easter egg is a hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, or computer program.

The term draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter-egg hunt observed in Western nations and many parts of Europe. Its usage in contexts other than literal Easter eggs is believed to originate in the movie Return of the Living Dead, where a military officer uses it as a code word for lost U.S. government containers of zombies created by a chemical spill.

Sometimes, Easter eggs can refer to some "hidden" cameo, like the appearance of the Children of the Green Planet and the Millennium Falcon in the prequel trilogy. Some, like the latter, are considered non-canon because they violate many aspects of Star Wars history. The numbers 1138 and 327, the phrase "I have a bad feeling about this," and name Tuckerizations can also be considered Easter eggs.
