How the Easter Bunny Got His Start

How the Easter bunny got his start:

Easter has many symbols to share,so many of which we have even forgotten their origins. Take the bunny and egg did we get from the sacrifice and rebirth of Jesus to a fluffy
bunny delivering eggs?? Well, I had that same question. So after a little searching I found some information I'd like to share with you. Well eggs have symbolized life and rebirth for centuries and they were adopted as a gift to give at Easter time between the royalty hundreds of years ago. They use to be crafted from gold and silver though not chocolate, personally I prefer the chocolate, yummy. Great detail was crafted on to those eggs and now they are worth a fortune to own. The egg giving was a symbol of Jesus sacrifice of his life. The rabbit or bunny has symbolized life,fertility and has been thought to bring spring by many cultures. Then long ago in a tale began of women who hide Easter treats for her children outside one
Easter Eve and when the next morning children went looking they saw a bunny next to their treats in what looked to them as a nest. Thus spread the tale of the Easter bunny delivering the eggs. It was later adopted by to add to our Easter celebrations. It's amazing to me how that wonderfully fun bunny is packed with a message of springs' rebirth and the sacrifices made to bring us all a new beginning.
