Uncanny Factoid: Eggshell Land (3 pics)

Posted in Random » Uncanny factoid   6 Apr 2011   / 3999 views

When it comes to Easter and eggs this couple and their self entitled Egg Shell Land wins hands down.

 

Imagine coloring and setup up over 40,000 eggs. That is what Ron and Betty Manolio in Lyndhurst, Ohio do each year to create this eggshell heaven. It all started back in 1957 when Ron’s mother began the tradition by coloring 750 colored eggshells to make a cross on her lawn.

Each year they color and create even more amazing displays. How do they create the eggshells? In the beginning they’d poke a hole in the bottom of the eggs and then drained before coloring. Now that they need thousands the local restaurant saves their egg shells so that the couple can color them by hand and place them on sticks in the yard.

Learn Something Fun: The first edible Easter Eggs were made in Germany during the early 19th century and were made of pastry and sugar.
