I haven't. I am trying to find out what it is because it is one of my trivia questions for today and I cannot find the answer for nothing. What does England do on egg Saturday? It has something to do with Easter, I believe.

I have never heard of it either and cannot find the answer to it for nothing. I have searched online for it but nothing for Easter Saturday comes up.

Hi stephcjh, My ancestors came from England, and we followed a lot of English traditions when I was growing up, but I've never heard of egg Saturday. We did have a tradition of eating boiled eggs for breakfast on Easter Sunday. Some of the young people would see who could eat the most eggs. I don't know if this has any connection or not. Blessings.

A wild guess, do you suppose it is an Easter Egg Hunt and they call it egg Saturday instead??

I am English and Ive never heard of this - is it the name?! Or could it be like a version of easter saturday - because of course we celebrate Good Friday, miss saturday out, and then we have easter sunday and easter monday. Maybe someone felt that that saturday was being left out and so created some kind of occasion for it lol.

I had never heard of this either steph but I have tried to do a bit of research! From what I can gather Egg Saturday was celebrated as a feast day on the Saturday before the beginning of lent! xxx
