was walking around in South Philly a couple of days ago and quite a few homes had cardboard Easter Rabbits/eggs in the windows, some homes even flying "Rabbit" flags. asked a barkeep at an Irish pub if it is standard practice in that part of town. She answered that she wasn't real familiar with South Philly but that alot of Catholics live in the area. anyway, thought it sort of interesting.

Cascarones* (easter eggs that kids love vs hard boiled/colored eggs)

carefully break a dozen eggs (keep carton for egg storage until Easter hunt) trying to salvage at least 3/4 of the shell (I don't know, make a large omelette or something)

wash/clean interior of shell. let dry.

paint eggs, let dry, then fill with confetti and top/glue colored tissue, "cone-head shaped" over opening. hide eggs in yard. let kids break the confetti eggs on each other's heads. fun.


\Cas`ca*ron"\, n. [Sp. cascar['o]n.] Lit., an eggshell; hence, an eggshell filled with confetti to be thrown during balls, carnivals, etc. [Western U. S.]
