What Does a Bunny Have to Do With Easter?

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?

What does a bunny have to do with Easter? Did you ever wonder this? Here's the answer, and several book suggestions for the occasion!
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?

An Easter Warning and an Easter Tradition

Wow, it's almost Easter already! 


An Easter Warning and an Easter Tradition - here are a couple of fun Easter stories - one you won't want to do, and one  you might!

Nowadays I don't do as much as we did when we were kids, but we still do eggs, Easter dinner with family, and the Easter Bunny still gives my daughter a basket. Yes, she's an adult and probably thinks it's dorky, but I love that the Easter Bunny still visits!

I have an Easter story from my past I'd like to share that comes with a warning: Count your eggs before they are hidden!

When we were kids, the Easter Bunny always hid eggs for us to find. This particular spring, my sister and I managed to find most of the eggs, leaving our little brother a few.  After much hunting, we were sure we'd found them all, so we went about our Easter business:  getting decked out in Easter clothes, church, comparing Easter baskets, dinner with the family, lots of Easter candy and general family enjoyment!

We'd long forgotten that spring morning the following November when the first snow came. We dug out last year's snow gear, and got ready for school. When we were leaving, my sister had trouble getting her boots on. She realized there was something in the boot.  Imagine our horror when she pulled out a very old Easter egg. No, not the plastic ones, but a colored, hard boiled egg!

Needless to say, we didn't open it, but we learned our lesson:  Always count the eggs!

I also want to share my family's Easter tradition. We call it the Polish tradition, since it came from my Dad, but we really have no idea where it came from. It all comes from the principle that when two eggs are clicked together, only one will crack! (I've never seen it fail, and I've been doing this for over 50 years!)

At the Easter dinner table, everyone chooses a hard boiled egg. Pairs click their eggs together, and the one who holds the uncracked egg moves on in the competition. Finally, a winner will emerge!

I am a lover of tradition. I don't think Easter would be Easter without the traditional egg cracking contest! Feel free to try this at your Easter dinner!

And don't forget to count your eggs!
