Can You Balance Eggs on End During the Spring Equinox? As the angle of the earth's inclination toward the sun changes throughout the year, lengthening or shortening the days according to season and hemisphere, there are two times annually when day and night are of more-or-less equal length: the spring and autumnal equinoxes. These celestial tipping points have been observed for thousands of years.
I've read you actually can make an egg balance upright on its own. There's a myth going around saying this balancing act is possible only on the vernal or autumnal equinox, the first days of Fall and Spring, approx. Sept. 21 and Mar. 21. I have read that the equinox part is just a myth, and the egg can, in fact, balance anytime of the year. (I haven't tested this, and don't know if it's true)
October's Party, George Cooper October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came— The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, And everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band. The Chestnuts came in yellow, The Oaks in crimson dressed; The lovely Misses Maple In scarlet looked their best; All balanced to their partners, And gaily fluttered by; The sight was like a rainbow New fallen from the sky.
