Many cultures have developed traditions around the decorating, exchanging, or games involving eggs.
In Scotland, the north of England, and Northern Ireland, the traditions of rolling decorated eggs down steep hills and The Pace Egg Plays are historic traditions. The Egg Play drama often takes the form of mock combat between the hero and villain, in which the hero is killed and brought back to life, often by a quack doctor.
