Roasted Egg


"A roasted egg is included among the objects placed upon the Seder table on the eve of the Passover to represent the "hagigah," or burnt offering... He who gets the roasted egg of the Seder on the morning of the second day of Passover will be specially lucky, and will gain whatever he wishes while eating it. If you steal an egg you will have seven years of poverty, and after death your body will roll round in the grave. A childless woman who is lucky enough to find an egg with a double yolk will, if she eats it, surely bear children."
