Some people love Christmas. Other’s Thanksgiving. My Stepfather? He loves the Equinox – which in case you didn’t know happens today March 20 at 7:44 am EST (11:44 GMT).
An equinox occurs twice per year when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun. This results in a few things. First, the length of night and day is approximately equal. Secondly, and more importantly to my stepfather – this is the day that eggs are supposed to easily be stood on their ends.
I’m still warming my two eggs (and they’re not standing) – however we have to wait until the magical 7:44 am EST to draw any final conclusions. How about you? Are your eggs standing?
