When can you stand up an egg?
I stood an egg up today, September 22, 2010, also known as the autumnal equinox. I've also heard that you can stand an egg up every solstice and equinox, but my chemistry teacher said that is can only happen on the autumnal equinox. At any time. I tried it on the Autumnal equinox one year, and it worked , and I have pictures of it.

Can you balance an egg on end at noon on December 21?
This is an urban legend. There is no special change in gravitation on December 21 (the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, when the Earth is closest to the Sun). If an egg cannot be balanced at any other time, it will not be any more possible on December 21. And, oddly enough, the original date suggested was the vernal equinox (March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere). Nothing special about balancing then either.

Can you balance an egg on the first day of spring?
Answer Yes you can! My sister, her husband and I actually were able to do it (and we took pictures to prove it). It takes a steady hand and a tremendous amount of patience, but it can be done. I believe there was a small window of time (maybe an hour or so) and I don't recall when that time was - other than on the vernal equinox - or why that is, but that was my personal experience. This was about 20 years ago when we did it, but it can be done. Answer You can balance an egg on the first day of spring, and on any other day of the year, if you have the remarkable patience and steady hands told about in the first answer. But no matter how many scientists and TV weathermen try to spike this urban legend, people want to believe there is something extra special about the vernal equinox.
