Where does the Easter bunny come from?

The Easter tradition of an Easter Bunny Rabbit comes from an old story about Spring and the change of season to the summer. The baby rabbit symbolizes new life just like with the duckling. That's why you'll find so many chocolate eggs in the shapes of bunnies.

The baby ducks and rabbits come with the change from Spring to Summer, with the flowers and new leaves on the trees.

One of the stories says how the bunny was sitting in a field in Spring and one of the sun rays caught him. As a result he became the Golden bunny and brought wealth to the farmers changing their dying crops to fresh new healthy ones. The Golden bunny is supposed to bring luck and money to anyone who sees him and has become a magical character over time.

      I used to make my own Easter eggs when the children were small, from moulds which I then filled with mini-eggs, decorated with ribbon and set in some tissue paper in a small basket. I made them with dark, milk and white chocolate. Now my younger daughter has taken over the tradition and does them really well.

      An Easter basket looks lovely as one can combine lots of different things.

      Interesting and creative hub. Ann
