Apparently, yes, but you can also do so on any other day of the year, given the right egg. It has more to do with the number and arrangement of bumps on the egg than the time of year. It also helps to shake the egg with enough force to break the yolk, lowering its force of gravity. I got to wondering about this last night when we went to go see an excellent folk music show including music from West Norway and from the Shetlands last night, performed by “Columbi Egg” whose name is derived from the story of the Egg of Columbus. Regardless, happy vernal equinox. I plan to celebrate by shaving my seasonal beard and starting a paper on appropriation in electronic literature.
