The Infernal Equinox

...



Today is the autumnal equinox, the day in fall where the sun spends and equal amount of time above and below the horizon. From here on out, the hours of daylight in the northern hemisphere will be getting shorter. We will officially say farewell to summer this weekend.

Legend says that you can balance eggs on their pointy ends on the vernal and autumnal equinox.




Is this true? Well, it always works at our house.

Well, the secret to this puzzle is the phrase "it always works at our house."

Always.

Oddly, I love busting this myth. I amaze and astound my kids by balancing eggs pretty much any day. With no grout lines!!! (Very cute)
