Every since I was little our family Easter tradition includes the annual egg fight. We take turns hitting the colored eggs against one another. The egg that doesn't crack is the winner. Nono (grandfather) introduced us to that tradition. He, my grandfather on my Mom's side was born in Malo, Italy. He came over on the boat when he was sixteen. Nono said it was a tradition from his town. Uhm... although at times I wonder because the only time I ever heard of another family ever having an egg fight or doing anything similar was in the movie, "My Big Fat Greeks Wedding." It is a lot of fun. We take great pride in coloring the eggs and enjoy the tradition.
Hopefully you too had a great Easter celebration.
