History of Easter Bunny and Easter Egg
The Easter bunny came to America in the 1700’s with German immigrants who celebrated the German tradition of an egg laying rabbit called “Osterhase”. The Children would build a nest for the creature to lay colored eggs. This tradition caught on and candy and toys have taken place of building a nest. The Easter Egg was adopted from early pagan ideas that the egg is a symbol of new life.
