When I mentioned my family has Easter eggs that we bring out every year. He asked why they didn't spoil and I explained that we took the eggs out of the shell (make a small hole with an icepick on one end and about twice as big a hole on the other, blow and rinse thoroughly) before decorating.

We can't be the only people who do this right?

Some of the eggs in question...we have like 15 dozen or so. (Most decorated by my Gran who had skills)
