踩点是兰开夏郡的一个古老习俗,曾经很普遍,今天在该郡的部分地区仍然可以看到。

Pace-Eggs是为复活节期间的一个节日专门装饰的鸡蛋,是一个有几百年历史的传统。

鸡蛋首先被包裹在洋葱皮中并被煮熟,使蛋壳呈现出金黄色的斑驳效果。 这是装饰鸡蛋的传统方式,尽管今天它们经常被涂抹。

佩斯蛋被认真对待......例如,在国王爱德华一世的家庭账目中,有一项 "1先令和6便士用于装饰和分发450个佩斯蛋!

在坎布里亚郡的格拉斯梅尔,在华兹华斯博物馆里,可以看到一系列最初为诗人的孩子们制作的高度装饰的鸡蛋。

通常情况下,佩斯蛋要么在复活节周日被吃掉,要么被分给佩斯蛋们。

这些Pace-Eggers曾经是兰开夏郡村庄里常见的景象。 他们是一群打扮奇特的 "巫师",脸色发黑,穿着兽皮,身上挂着彩带和彩旗。

他们唱着传统的Pace-egger's歌曲穿过街道,并收集钱财以示敬意。

在奥姆斯柯克附近的伯斯考(Burscough),Pace-egger的游行一直持续到最近,而且是一个相当大的场面!"!

游行队伍中包括各种角色......高贵的青年、同性恋女士、勇敢的士兵和老扔锅!老扔锅是一个喝醉了的小丑,他戴着一个塞满针脚的长草尾巴。 抓住老扔锅的尾巴是不明智的。

在普雷斯顿的阿文纳姆公园,今天仍然有很多人聚集在一起,观看古老的传统滚蛋比赛,从草坡上滚下来。

鸡蛋被煮得很硬,然后进行装饰,今天有数百名儿童竞争,看谁的鸡蛋能滚得最远而不破裂。

警告大家......空的佩斯蛋壳必须被压碎,因为它们在兰开夏郡的女巫中很受欢迎,她们用它们做船。

你已经被警告了!!
