What has rabbits and eggs got to do with Easter?
In Christian faith it was said that Jesus’ friend, Mary Magdalene was on her way to visit Jesus’ tomb with some freshly cooked eggs to share with other women that where visiting his tomb. She saw that Christ has risen and the eggs in her basket suddenly turned blood red. The egg is the symbol of the boulder of the tomb of Jesus.
Now traditionally Chocolate Easter Eggs are given and received during the Easter/Spring period to represent the Tomb.
A pre-Christian story of what eggs and bunnies have to do with Easter comes from the old traditions of the Pagans, the pagans say that rabbits are fertility symbols which are important to their Goddess, ‘Eostara’, which is where the word Easter comes from.
Because rabbits can reproduce so fast it makes rabbits a perfect symbol of fertility and eggs; “from the egg comes life”.
