My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Egg Knocking Explained

Okay, I'm definitely going to have to adopt this tradition!! This sounds like a lot of fun!!


Apparently instead of hiding boiled/dyed eggs to find, everyone picks out one egg. Then they go around to each other and knock the eggs together. If your egg cracks you're out. The game keeps going until there is only one uncracked egg left and that person wins the prize. As my aunt says she almost always wins I'm going to have to get her to tell me all the secrets of the game before I play!! :-)

We used to play this when I was younger. We'd also crack eggs on each others heads! I don't recommend that :0)

i've never heard of this one, either. i'm assuming you do it with a hard boiled egg.

This is a new one for me and I love Diana's comment. It made me giggle! No Diana dear, you do this with a raw egg!

Well, now this sounds like a lot of fun! lol And if we play Diana's version, messy too!

The secret is that your egg is hardboiled but no one knows that! Of course, that would be cheating and I am positive that you are not the cheating type!

It does sound like a lot of fun, though - unless you have overly enthusiastic egg-knockers in your family (i.e., boys!).
