A cascarón is a hollowed-out chicken egg filled with confetti or small toys. Cascarones are common throughout Mexico and are similar to the Easter eggs popular in many other countries, they are used in Mexico during Carnival, but in US and Mexico border towns the cultures combined to make them a popular Easter tradition. Decorated, confetti-filled cascarones may be thrown or crushed over the recipient's head to shower them with confetti; this originated in Spain. When a child would act up, their father would crack an egg over their head as a consequence, a way of showing their disappointment in them. In addition to Easter, cascarones have become popular for occasions including birthdays, New Year's, Cinco de Mayo, Dieciséis, Day of the Dead, weddings.. Like many popular traditions in Mexico, cascarones are popular in the southwestern United States. For example, they are prominent during the two-week, citywide festival of Fiesta in San Antonio, Texas. Cascarones are made during Easter time. In order to make cascarones, one can use a pin or knife to break a hole in the end of the eggshell and pour the contents out.
The shell is cleaned out, decorated as desired, allowed to dry, before it is filled with confetti or a small toy. Glue is applied around the outside of the hole and covered with tissue paper. Cascarones was said to originate from China to Spain and Mexico by Marco Polo. An article about Christmas celebrations published in the Los Angeles Star newspaper on January 4, 1855, includes the sentence, "In the city, cascarones commanded a premium, many were complemented with them as a finishing touch to their headdress." Maximilian and his wife Carlota did not arrive in Mexico until 1864, nine years later. It was in Mexico.
