First Day of Spring !!

posted by Mark Wiatrowski in Spring, eggs.

Every year for the last 5 or 6 years, I have a little ritual that I do on the first day of Spring. I heard that on this day, you can take a raw egg and stand it up on end and it will stay. I tried it and every year since it has worked!!! It has something to do with the position of the Earth at this time of year, I really can't remember the details. All I know is with a little bit of patience, you can make an egg stand up on its bottom !!

Try it for yourself !!     Happy First Day of Spring !!

My father who was a teacher did this for my son when he was little. He used to do these little projects for his grandson. I think a globe was used to show the tilt of the earth at that exact time. Dad says the egg needs to be raw and you need to do this at the time when they say spring arrives.. I think is was around 7:30am this morning. But you're right Mark, it does work.
