It's Egg Pocking Time in South Louisiana!


What in the world is egg pocking you may ask?

If you grew up in South Louisiana it is likely you grew up with this tradition. Egg pocking is a serious deal in my family. The Saturday before Easter Sunday is spent dying eggs for the coveted pocking tournament on Easter morning. It goes like this...Each person will pick out a perfect egg after studying each egg carefully. Next, one person will hold their egg upright and the other will tap their egg against the upright tip of the opponent. The opponents egg that does not crack is declared the winner of that round and will move on to face the next opponent. The last man standing is declared the winner! 

Do you have any Easter traditions as strange as Egg Pocking?
