Origin of the Easter Bunny.
In today's time Easter is generally thought of as a Christian religious holiday, however Easter is actually originated from a Saxon pagan festival celebrated the return of the spring and commemorated Eastre (Oestre, Oastra) - the goddess of spring and fertility. In Pagan times the rabbits were one of the symbol of fertility as they are notable for their capacity of abundant production of young especially at spring time of year. It seems that the Germans were the first to associate the rabbits with Easter (in 1500s). In 1700s they introduced them to America and in 1800s they made the first edible Easter bunny, made out of pastry and sugar.
