During Spring, farmers status to resource their egg and not eat them in command to have plenty birthing for chickens, ducks, etc. Hence: don't eat foodstuff in Spring. Don't eat food product in Lent.

Run to the religion with a cooking pan,
Never you be unable to find a minute!
Run to the minster beside a sauteing pan
and a pallid flapcake in it.
First to pass her flannel-cake there,
though cumbersome or floaty she rhythm it,
Must flip her bar to the Bellringer,
And the bellringer he must eat it.
Then be she a ma'am or be she a miss
All smothering after rushing,
The bellringer he shall make available her a kiss
And ne'er knowledge her blushing!
Come Easter Sunday (with ample chickens and ducklings hatched!) and, erstwhile once again we can get going ingestion food product. Easter eggs!
