Do eggs stand on end only at the equinox?

As Neil would say....


See this egg?



I'm planning on laying it next Tuesday!

Call me a skeptic.  A friend recently told me that you can stand an egg on end, but only during the equinox.  Is this true?  If so, why only on the equinox?  Why not any day of the year?
