Easter Bunny?!!

Just a quick post. When i was blogsurfing i came across a lot of posts wishing people happy Easter and there were talks of Easter bunnies and eggs.

Honestly, what do bunnies and eggs have to do with Easter?!!

And is there any relationship between bunnies and eggs themselves? Do bunnies lay eggs? Protect eggs? Eat eggs?

hmmm... definetly don't remember anything about bunnies or eggs in the bible...

Indeed those things are something that we constantly need to be reminded of. I know I need to be reminded daily that no matter what stupid things I do, nothing is going to separate me from God's amazing perfect love.

I have asked this so many times...

It's the prelude to the equivalent of turkeys on thanks giving.
BTW they added chocolate to the mix now.

@ Clarissa - I think this is taking the chicken-egg controvery to new heights! Great! Never thought of it this way...

@ Allegri - Yeah. I think i need such reminders too.

@ Me - He he... Guess we were born with question marks on our faces...

@ Causalien - Now, why do they have turkeys at thanksgiving?!! And do they add choc in them as well?!!! I love chocolate, you see...

By the way, i have been reading up in Wiki about bunnies and eggs... Seems like it has got something to do with fertility and stuff. Apparently the festival is named after a Germanic goddess Eostre. So bunnies and eggs symbolise birth and fertility as spring means new birth and stuff...

Well, I suppose it's Easter's equivalent to Christmas trees, jingle bells and all that jazz!

For "other people" to not get offended by Christianity, you know...
I wish they'd do the same for every other festival. I'd love to have another furry rodent parading around and distributing andhabhavan sweets for other holidays! And they could put up a banana tree or something.

Wolfsong said...

Sorry if I offended anyone but I wish everyone had such outlets for every other festival if the true meaning of such days are taken away!
