Last Sunday marked the shortest day of the year and the Winter Solstice.
One and the same, I suppose.
Anyway, in our house and that of my childhood, it also marks the day that we attempt to stand eggs up on their ends.
Yes, we are odd...but it is fun.
Have you ever tried this?
As I was looking into this phenomena, I learned that standing eggs on their ends can actually be done on days other than the solstices...takes a bit of the magic away, but I am undeterred.
We will continue.
