Easter egg throwing makes comeback in German town

STORY: On Sunday, after a two year break due to COVID restrictions, the contest made a comeback, with enthusiastic

throwers hurling brightly coloured hard-boiled eggs into a meadow.

Distance is a factor but the egg must be unbroken when it is measured to count as a valid throw, explained Mayor Thomas Schmidt, who welcomed the return of the event.

“You can see that people have the longing to just move outdoors again, but also be among other people”, Schmidt said, adding that many Ukrainian refugees were taking part.

Since the beginning of the Russian war against Ukraine Germany has documented the arrival of over 300,000 Ukrainians into the country.

The Horhausen egg throwing competition has reached its 34th anniversary this year.
