You may know that Christians around the world celebrate Easter as a remembrance to their God’s son Jesus being raised from the dead three days after his crucifixion by the Roman government. But what about the charming little bunny and all those extraordinarily colorful eggs?
According to the University of Florida’s Center for Children’s Literature and Culture, the origin of the Easter Bunny can be traced back to 13th-century, pre-Christian Germany, when people worshiped several gods and goddesses. One of those pagan goddesses was Eostra, the goddess of spring and fertility. Spring is associated with new life and birth, like all the beautiful flowers we enjoy each year in April. What could symbolize fertility better than fluffy kits of bunnies? The first documented Easter Bunny legend was in the 1500s. These legends migrated to the United States in the 1700s, when German immigrants settled here. Bunnies, eggs, Easter gifts, and fluffy, yellow chicks all stem from pagan roots. These traditions were incorporated into the celebration of Easter separately from the Christian tradition. Regardless of the tradition you choose to celebrate, spending time with family and friends over a delicious meal and entertainment is endorses by everyone! Consider these spots in Charleston, SC
