In the "Bungie Mail Sack 9.0"
[quote]Its A Mirage asked the following question:
Are there any Easter eggs from your past games that surprised you at how quickly they were found or any that surprised you at how long they took to find?
Definitely the IWHBYD skull in H3. But you cheated. There is one Easter egg in Halo 3 that I don't think anyone has found - I stumbled across it in code a while back. It only happens on a specific day...so good luck.
This has really raised my curiosity. Does anyone have any ideas?

This may be *old* news, but I've only just found out about it.

This was in Mail Sack 13:
[quote]What is your proudest moment in your time at Bungie?
Showing my wife the Easter egg I put in the halo 3 loading screen for her - the one that nobody has found yet.
Update, again. In [url=http://www.bungie.net/News/Blog.aspx?mode=news#cid32088]Mail Sack 14[/url], this is what we got.
Xd00999 Can you give us any more hints on Easter eggs we have not found yet?
No. I cannot. And you, beloved community, must all stop asking. I am sorry. This revival of Easter egg hysteria is entirely my fault. In a previous Sack, I allowed the panel to tease you with mentions of Halo eggs that have yet to be found. You will never find them all. We cannot give you hints. If we did, those eggs would lose their magic. You simply must stop sending me private messages, and stop dropping these questions into the Sack. The strain of lugging around the extra weight of them just might break my back.[/quote]
Looks like no more information for us. We must do the rest of the work, ourselves.
Here is what we know, so far.
-Easter egg is on a specific day
-Easter egg happens in a loading screen.
Based on that information, it could happen any day of the year, in a loading screen.
But, what is a loading screen? Most of the Halo 3 loading is done in lobby..
I figure, it's when you complete a mission, without scoring on. You come to the screen with the Halo ring filling up. That is the only loading screen I can think of.
Activating the Easter egg, seems to be most likely a button combination. How else would you activate one during a loading screen?
What we need to figure out
-How to activate the egg
