Why Are Bunnies Associated With Easter?
Where did the Easter Bunny come from? If a child asks, the best answer might be to say, “a mommy and daddy bunny.” But for historians, the question is a bit of a mystery. There are some clues that take us to the American colonial era, and the German Renaissance. But before that, the bunny trail goes cold.
