Happy Easter !

Some of you asked me : yes, it’s the Easter rabbit for which I watched on Wednesday indeed !

He visited us this morning, and left something for the humans :

The tradition of dyed eggs for Easter is common to many countries, but here we also have another tradition that features eggs : egg tapping.

We play with hard-boiled eggs, before eating them, and rules are very easy : every player holds his egg in his hand and bangs it against the egg of another player to try to break the shell of the opponent, without breaking his own. The players agree to collide eggs summit against summit or base against base. The one whose egg breaks has lost.

Did you already know this tradition ? Have you already played ?

We found a video of this fascinating game in which one you can also hear some Swiss-German dialect of the canton of Zürich. For those who speak German, can you understand this charming presenter ?

Happy Easter !

Good Easter weekend

Grandpa stroke again ! This time, he came back from his trip to Spain with a complete set of tableware that he offered to Claire : a big tablecloth, matched towels, a board, ceramic knives, and linen.

The brand A Loja do Gato Preto has shops in Portugal, in Spain and in France. With all that stuff, we’re already delighted to lay the table for Easter !

By speaking about Grandpa, he needs your help, especially the help of pals who know well the United States : he is soon going to go to New York, Boston, Philadelphie, Washington DC, and Lancaster, and he would like to know if you know stores with very cool things for crazy cat people. Have you good addresses to be given to him ? Thank you for mentioning them in comments or sending us a message via our Facebook page.
