Introducing 3...


Some Easter facts all about eggs which I thought only fitting as it is Easter Sunday...
  • In medieval times a festival of egg throwing was held in church, during which the priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choirboys. It was then tossed from one choirboy to the next and whoever held the egg when the clock struck 12 was the winner and retained the egg.
  • To Egyptians, the egg was a sacred token of the renovation of mankind after the Flood.
  • The custom of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life.
