EASTER GAME

IN BOSTON, AT EASTER TIME, EGGS ARE PUT IN THE CENTER OF THE TABLE,
ALL BEING HARD-BOILED EXCEPT ONE. PEOPLE THEN TAKE TURNS GOING
AROUND THE ROOM AND RUBBING THE EGG ON EVERYONE'S HEAD WHILE SAYING,
"THIS DOG COMES HOME", UNTIL FINALLY ONE EGG (THE RAW ONE) BREAKS ON SOME
POOR INDIVIDUAL'S HEAD, WHO RISES AND SAYS, "THIS DOG DOESN'T COME
HOME".
