It’s the first day of Fall.
The autumnal equinox is at 5:18 Eastern time.
I’ve heard that one can stand an egg on its end right at the equinox (both Vernal and Autumnal). But Snopes says no…
There is a way to do it anytime. Put about half a teaspoon to a teaspoon of sugar or salt on the counter, table, or a plate. Make sure it’s in a little mound. Cover with a napkin. Put the egg on the napkin covered mound. Adjust as necessary. The egg should stay up and you can Amaze Your Friends!
