Get ready to celebrate Great Egg Toss Day on Sept. 6! This fun day has been around since the early 1900s and is a great way to get your family, friends, and neighbors together for some laughs and competition. The idea is simple: toss an egg back and forth between two people, with each person trying to throw it farther than the other. The winner gets bragging rights — but everyone who plays will have a blast! So break out the eggs, gather up your crew, and get ready for some serious egg-tossing action.
