Hunting eggs is a well-known tradition in the U.S., but have you ever hear of knocking eggs?
Dating back to medieval Europe, the game of “Egg Knocking” involves two competitors tapping the pointed ends of their eggs against each other to see whose egg cracks first. The person with the cracked egg loses.
This game has been an annual tradition in Marksville, Louisiana, since 1956. The locals prepare for months feeding their chickens calcium-rich goodies to strengthen their shells. Families battle it out at the courthouse square on Easter Sunday.
