Photo of the day: punta e cul

Typical Easter game in Urbania... Smash your neighbour's egg and take home all the eggs that you can break (hard boiled, of course!)

Reminds me of a game we used to play in Athens at Easter: all the eggs were dyed red and one of them was wooden, so it always won and you weren't supposed to be able to tell which was made of wood. In fact the whorls on the wood showed through the paint and gave it away.

:D Thank you for the nice story Alys!
Someone told me that something similar is also played in Slovenia.
No wooden eggs here... but apparently everyone has a theory about the way to choose the "best" egg and the way to hold it so that it wouldn't break! :)
