There are two towns in our parish (county to the rest of America) that hold a yearly egg knocking for Easter.
Here’s a fantastic article on the event, that will give you more information. Lots of information, even stuff I didn’t know.
Local residents go to great lengths to find the ‘perfect’ egg. Some have special nutrients to produce the hardest egg shell that they can find in order to win.
One year my eldest daughter won the top prize. She’s really into it and actually owns chickens.
As you look at the picture, you can see that any age can play.
It’s great fun. You might want to introduce it to your family after your egg hunt.
