Easter Egg Roll Tradition


Brent CannonWe recently celebrated Easter. When I was growing up that meant the annual “egg roll.” As we colored our eggs we tried to determine which one would be our competition egg. We referred to that egg as the “champeen” egg. On Easter – each person would gather his or her “champeen” egg. The competition was one on one. Each person got down on the floor a few feet apart – and then we rolled our eggs at each other. We did this until the two eggs collided. Then we checked ‘em out. One was cracked, and one wasn’t. The cracked egg was out. The uncracked egg advanced to the next round. This went on until there was a winner. The only prize was bragging rights for next year.
