Switzerland, the home of cheese and chocolate is also home to a tradition that is loved by so many especially in the capital city of Bern. It is called Eierttschet, which means Egg bashing. Yes, you heard right. Egg bashing, egg tapping, whatever you want to call it, has been around for so many years and is played by many cultures. Heres how it works: Around 9 am on Easter Sunday people from all over will come spilling to the streets and the Kornhausplatz (a square in the city of Bern) becomes a battlefield, where the young and old and every generation in between goes head to head (quite literally) with strangers in a feat to find out who has the strongest boiled egg.
The age-old tradition of blowing eggs and painting them is set to make an appearance this year. It's a great way to entertain children, grandchildren and adults alike. If the term Blown Egg is new to you, don't sweat it. It is an egg that has had the gooey insides removed and all you are left with is a perfectly intact shell that with a lick of paint and a dash of creativity you paint and they become awesome ornaments and keepsakes.
Its three in one deal really. But most people don't see it like that. They only use the insides and throw the rest out. We are here to tell you that you can save money, be more environmentally friendly and reuse eggshells and cartons in ways that can really benefit you! You've paid for all three so why not use them to the fullest? If you throw your eggshells into the compost, we applaud you. Awesome work, but did you know that this is more you can do with them? Just keep reading.
