"FRO-ah OS-tairn"/"Throw-a egg" All right, it's a little forced.
Anyway... We made cascarones (confetti-filled eggs) this year. Supposedly, the practice came to Italy--as did pasta--in Marco Polo's luggage from China. And since the Professor returned from China on Easter Sunday, it all comes full circle. In my mind at least.
Very, very fun.
