What Does a Bunny Have to Do With Easter?

Easter bunny
Did you ever wonder where the bunny came from?  Or, for that fact, baby chicks?  Or eggs? What do all these things have in common?

I often wondered that, so I looked it up, and it all made sense.  Rabbits, chicks, and eggs all represent new life.

It is also appropriate that the date of Easter is close to the Spring Equinox. Again, we're talking about new life: rebirth, the world comes back to life.  It all goes together, doesn't it?

I really don't think chocolate bunnies tie in, but I think we all could use a chocolate bunny!  Or maybe some Marshmallow Peeps!




Here are a few books about Easter that I found!  Don't you love Jan Brett?

                              


Here are a couple of books with a Spring focus!    
      
What post about Easter would be complete with this classic?



It's only a couple of weeks from now.  Spring, believe it or not, arrives this March 20th at 12:30 am EDT!

Hopefully we won't have any more snow in New England!
