On Easter Sunday, many children wake up to find that the Easter Bunny has left them baskets of chocolate eggs. Many children will hunt for eggs inside and outside their homes.
The Easter Bunny is a rabbit-spirit. Some people say he lives on the Moon while others say he comes from the Easter Planet. One theory says he was named the Easter Hare. Since Rabbits and Hares have multiple eggs – the tradition was said to have started because children believed rabbits and hares laid all those eggs in grassy areas. Christians say eggs are “the beginning of all life” – hence they celebrate the resurrection. Romans say all life begins as an egg, hence while they celebrate Easter. As early as Medieval Europe citizens created lovely decorated eggs to give as presents on Easter Sunday.
