The Story of Easter and the Easter Bunny
Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus; however, Easter has also become a secular holiday for many non-Christians as well. This means that people celebrate Easter in a variety of different ways. This is how the Easter bunny, which is in no way mentioned in Biblical scripture, comes into play.
The origin of the Easter bunny is unknown, but there are a few theories about it. In one theory, the rabbit is the symbol of fertility according to pagan traditions. Another idea stems from eggs as a symbol for bringing about new life, and this is why the Easter bunny prances around hiding eggs.
The idea may come from Germany before traveling to the United States, where the immigrants made nests for their colored eggs. Over time, the story became one involving the Easter bunny leaving behind presents for children, often left in baskets.
Why Eggs Represent Easter & Egg Hunts
Eggs tend to represent Easter because of their representation of new life. An egg is one of the first steps to the existence of a new baby, which is also commonly associated with the season of spring. For this reason, springtime and Easter go hand in hand.
Today, egg hunts are incredibly common among those who celebrate Easter. Parents, or “the Easter Bunny,” will hide decorated eggs around the house or yard. Children will hunt down the eggs, uncovering every nook and cranny in the hope of finding as many eggs as possible. There may be a prize available for the child who finds the most eggs, or perhaps the child will uncover an Easter basket in the process.
How to Celebrate Easter
Fortunately, there are many ways to celebrate Easter. People who are religious may opt to go to church for a special service. It is often a big ceremony held on Easter Sunday. After the service, families may go out to lunch or to spend some time together. It is common for people to dress up in their best clothing for this special holiday.
In other cases, giving presents is a fun way to celebrate. Easter baskets and egg hunts are the most traditional presents. There are many available, plenty of which are easy to order online with Gift Hampers HK. This means the Easter bunny will have plenty of time off this year!
