Decorated eggs are much older than Easter, and both eggs and rabbits are age-old fertility symbols. In the North of England, at Eastertime, a traditional game is played where hard boiled eggs are distributed and each player hits the other players egg with their own. This is known as "egg dumping" or "egg jarping". The winner is the holder of the last intact egg. The losers get to eat their eggs. Wikipedia
