A few years ago, I blogged on the Louisiana Prairie Cajun Easter tradition of “pacquing” eggs.  That post got quite a few hits as well as comments, so I assume this is a topic of interest.

For that reason, I videoed my granddaughter this afternoon “pacquing” eggs with her Aunt Ann while her Mom and her grandparents, Honey and Grammy, looked on.  I wanted to post this depiction of the Cajun folk tradition that I found so interesting when I married Cajun so many years ago and fell quite in love with the rich culture.

A word about the etymology of “pacquing”–The French word for Easter is Pacque.   Made into a verb, it’s pacquer. Thus, “On va pacquer des oeufs.”  (We’ll pacque some eggs.)

Anyway, here’s Payton and friends.
