Let’s rejoice, for this is the time to celebrate!
Easter, the most important holiday which celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection is finally here. It has been called a moveable feast since it doesn’t fall on a fixed date as other celebrations do. It also marks the beginning of spring symbolizing new life and birth.
People around the world celebrate Easter in a variety of ways depending on the traditions they follow. In US, Easter is celebrated with much vigor and pomp. It is the tradition here to conduct parades, carnivals, egg decorations, feasts and much more. Easter bunny is an integral part of the celebration. Ask a kid what Easter is all about and he/she is sure to tell you about the Easter bunny and finding the Easter basket filled with all goodies.
The origin of Easter bunny can be traced back to 13th century when people held feasts in the honor of the Teutonic deity Eostra, the goddess of spring and fertility. Rabbit has been the symbol of the goddess because of the animal’s high reproduction rate.
Easter bunny was first brought in to the country by the German settlers during the 1700s. Eventually, the custom spread across the entire country. Kids believe that Easter rabbits lay eggs for them to find on Easter day. The night before Easter, they leave basket for the Easter bunny to put eggs in. Today, eggs has been replaced by chocolates and candies. This folkloric figure is depicted as a rabbit carrying Easter eggs in a basket. Yet another popular tradition is holding parades on the Easter Sunday. It dates back to mid-1800s. People dress up in new and trendy clothes.
