Panchita is getting ready for Fiesta here in Texas. One of the Fiesta traditions in San Antonio, Texas is “Cascarones”…hollowed out eggs that are dyed and filled with confetti. They are cracked on the heads of Fiesta party-goers.
Fiesta honors and celebrates the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. How cracking confetti eggs became part of the party is anyone’s guess…We do the same thing during Easter…go figure…Panchita has been busy getting the Cascarones ready for the party. This month’s tag will capture that crazy tradition…again, my tag is nowhere near finished. My 88 year old mother has been in the hospital most of the week and Panchita has been put on hold…but there you have the plan…Tag to follow.
