A Mexican tradition that, like many others, has been adopted in Texas is the crushing of cascarones, meant to be broken above the head of a friend or loved one, at Easter (...birthdays, Halloween, or Dia de los Muertos -- just about any occasion involving a good party).

Cascarones are eggs filled with confetti or small toys. Having a cascarón broken over your head is said to bring good luck.

Feliz Páscoa ... He is risen indeed!

As I was changing clothes this evening, confetti seemed to fall from just about everywhere.
