Bunnies, chicks, and eggs are all common Easter associations, but have you ever wondered where this tradition began? Thousands of years ago, pagan festivals were held each spring to celebrate the goddess of fertility, whose earthly form was said to take the shape of a rabbit. The festivals also celebrated the appearance of bird eggs, as these were abundant in the early spring, and symbolized hope for a healthy new season. These festivals went by the name of "Eastre" -- in later years, this holiday combined with the Christian celebrations of Christ’s rebirth, and the entire celebration came to be known by its current spelling of Easter. Since the two holidays were so closely interwoven, the symbols of Eastre soon came to be associated with the Christian holiday as well, and now it’s hard to go anywhere in spring without being greeted by these symbols of rebirth!
