Where did the Easter Bunny and its basket of eggs come from anyway?
In ancient Egypt and Persia the egg and was a symbol of new life, the exchange of eggs a tradition symbolic of rebirth. Rabbits also symbolized rebirth to the Egyptians, to them the rabbit was a symbol of the moon.
That symbolism perservered into modern times and was adopted by Christianity to help celebrate the resurrection on Easter Sunday.
The Easter Bunny delivers the eggs and the date of Easter itself is determined by the phases of the moon.
Happy Easter, and may the Easter Bunny bring everyone a basket of eggs today.
