Spring Is Just Around The Corner!

According to folklore, you can stand a raw egg on
 its end on the equinox. Is this true?

On spring, a few minutes before the vernal equinox, 
several Almanac editors tried this trick. 
For a full workday, 17 out of 24 eggs stood standing. 
Three days later, we tried this trick again and found similar results.
Perhaps 3 days after the equinox was still too near. 
Try this yourself and let me know what happens!


  1. LOL spring is round the corner. Thanks for the smiles. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I have heard that about the eggs but have never tried it myself.
