Gigi Miller, reacts as Layne Sweeney cracks an egg over Julia Smart’s head during a hunt for Mexican Cascarones Easter Eggs Thursday at Holy Name Catholic School. Students from spanish language studies made the cascarones by emptying eggs then filling them with confetti. The confetti-filled eggs are part of hispanic tradition that involves cracking the eggs over a person’s head. The showering of the confetti is said to bring good luck and good fortune to the recipient. In a religious context, the eggs represent the empty tomb and the resurrection of Jesus.
