Bungie is well-known for including obscure Easter eggs within its games. The Halo franchise is no different as several have been found over the years. But at least one known egg has remained hidden for nearly seven years - until...

Pretty cool! And definitely better than Disney's Easter Eggs...

"He also added that it's one that nobody has found yet." Should read Had found, because clearly it has been discovered. As far as Easter Eggs in games go, very uninteresting. Not even sure why this is news worthy to be honest.

I think its cool. easter eggs are more often than not things of special significance to one or few people. When you consider that some dude put a hidden message to his wife in a game to millions and millions of people, and no one but them (bungie) knew about it for years, its pretty impressive and kind of charming.
Too many times people expect easter eggs to be things that matter to them, like hidden levels or cheats or something, when they usually are exact opposite.

As outlined in a post over at Team Beyond, the Easter egg in question can only be activated on one day each year - December 25.
you'll see the Easter egg in the form of text that reads, "Happy Birthday, Lauren!"
former Bungie developer Adrian Perez said one of his proudest moments during his time with Bungie was showing his wife the Easter egg he put in the Halo 3 loading screen for her.
I'm guessing his wife's name is Lauren and her birthday is Dec 25.

I'm trying to picture whether that was a recent statement or one during the time he showed his wife.

I'm guessing you're right. I'm also guessing that if he got her birthday wrong she is now he's ex.

A few of those (very few) I can see being intentional but most are just people seeing what they want to see which says more about their mindset than that of Disney.
