Easter is indeed upon us. I take it everywhere you go you have begun to see the common egg and bunny décor. It got me to thinking… where does this all come from? Being raised Baptist I know of the Christian meaning of Easter and of Christ being risen on the third day (takes a moment for reverence).
But that didn’t tie into the whole painting eggs and bunny costumes. So, I decided to do a little research, aka seeking knowledge from the All-Knowing Google. Come to find out, there are many different origins listed for Easter. Many dating from a time before Christ. And to my excitement most where in celebration of femininity and sexuality, New life and new beginnings. Kinda like being born again… get it.
I’ve listed some links below of the origins and folklore surrounding this ancient holiday. All in fun, so that maybe next time someone randomly asks what all the bunnies are about on Easter you can say... something. Ha!
