The World Egg Throwing Championships take place in Swaton, England at the end of June each year. It is believed to have originated in 1322 when Swaton’s new abbot encouraged church attendance by giving out eggs. When the nearby river flooded, stopping church attendance, the monks threw the eggs over the river. Over the next 700 years the townspeople took part in the fun.
