Legend of the Easter Bunny

According to legend, the Easter bunny originated in Germany, dating back to 1682, when a German professor wrote a book titled, On Easter Eggs. He stated because of the myth, simple-minded folks and children believed an Easter Rabbit laid and hid eggs in gardens to hunt, in order to amuse adults.

Supposedly, the legend arrived with German immigrants to America. Children originally made ‘nests’ for the eggs, but at some point, that evolved into baskets.

During the medieval period, rabbits were associated with the Virgin Mary, and it is believed the bunny was used as a symbol for Easter by German Protestants. Since an egg represents ‘new life’ it became connected to the resurrection of Jesus, and it is said that the cracking of the egg represents the empty tomb.

As legends go, I can’t be sure if any of this is true, but it got me to thinking what if the tradition had started here in the US in place of Germany? Instead of an Easter bunny, some other animal might have won the honor![

If you want a super easy and delicious dessert for your Easter guests, try this Coconut Cake. To make it Easter festive, let the kids dye the coconut green and arrange a candy egg border around the base of the cake.  Enjoy and Hoppy Easter![
