Happy Easter!! Pocking eggs is a tradition that goes back generations in Cajun households. The game is played by holding an egg and having your opponent “pock” your egg. The winner is the player whose egg didn’t crack. If you’re competitive this definitely a game for you! #jeffdavisparish #onlyinlouisiana #louisianatravel
