The local cascarones tradition means a head full of glitter at Easter time and some moms stopped by KRQE to show us how it’s done.
Cascarones are a beloved New Mexican tradition at Easter time because it’s the one time of year when busting an egg on someone’s head means getting a head full of festive glitter. The tradition has been around since at least the 1800’s, and it’s easy to make at home. Representatives from Albuquerque Moms Blog visited the studio with tips on how to make home-made Cascarones ahead of this weekend’s Easter festivities.
