Finding the perfect emoji to express your feelings can be tough. When one grandmother struggled to find the right Easter emoji, she knew who to ask for help.

Who better to consult with this problem than her grandson, who just happens to be the chief emoji officer at Emojipedia, Jeremy Burge.

Her text read: “Please just a quickie …. I am sending a few Easter emails and I whizzed through to find an Easter egg emoji …. Please Jeremy …. is there one?” She signs the text off with love and a bunch of emojis.

Unfortunately for Burge’s grandmother, an Easter egg emoji does not exist.

However, he did suggest some others she may wish to use, including the cross, rabbit and chick emojis.

After a thorough search of the emoji keyboard, she found the ones she needed to send her Easter message, and very grateful she was too.
