The word ‘Easter’ comes from a pagan figure called ‘Eastre’, who was the goddess of spring. It became a festival to celebrate the sunrise and the change of season – Spring Equinox- and it was eventually applied to the Christian celebration of the resurrection of Christ.

But why bunnies and eggs?

The goddess Eastre’s symbol was the rabbit, representing fertility. But, how this became a tradition? Well, the legend of the Easter Bunny bringing eggs appears to have been brought to the United States from Germany. It says that the Bunny brings baskets filled with coloured eggs, candy and sometimes toys. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere so children can find them in the morning –Easter egg hunt.

The Easter Bunny is merely a symbol, just like Santa Claus.

The eggs represent birth, new life. Giving a chocolate egg is a common Easter gift.

The first chocolate eggs appeared in France and Germany in the 19th century but were bitter and hard. As chocolate-making techniques improved, hollow eggs like the ones we have today were developed. They very quickly became popular and remain popular today.
