Easter Bunny History
The Easter Bunny has its origin in pre-Christian fertility lore. The Hare and the Rabbit were the most fertile animals known and they served as symbols of the new life during the Spring season. As Christianity spread through Europe, the Easter Bunny became a symbol of Christ rising from the dead. To fit into this role, the female fertility symbol switched gender and became a boy.

The Easter Bunny as a holiday symbol seems to have it's origins in Germany, where it was first mentioned in German writings in the 1500s. The first edible Easter bunnies were baked pastry bunnies with sugar toppings that were made in Germany during the early 1800s.

The Easter bunny was introduced to American folklore by the German settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s. The arrival of the "Oschter Haws" was considered "childhood's greatest pleasure" next to a visit from Christ-Kindel on Christmas Eve. The children believed that if they were good the "Oschter Haws" would lay a nest of colored gummy candies shaped like eggs, which eventually became known as jelly beans.

The children would build their nest in a secluded place in the home, the barn or the garden. Boys would use their caps and girls their bonnets to make the nests. The custom changed over time and eventually the Easter Bunny began to deposit eggs - in children's shoes. The use of elaborate Easter baskets would come later as the tradition of the Easter bunny spread through out the country.

It wasn't until after the Civil War that Easter and the Easter Bunny were widely celebrated and recognized in America by all other Christians
