What’s the story behind the Easter bunny?

Friday, March 29th, 2013

For many children around the world, the excitement of hunting eggs left by the Easter bunny is part of the magic of Easter. Rabbits are often associated with Spring due to their fertility at this time of year … but where did the story of the Easter bunny come from? The story of the Easter bunny dates back to the Anglo-Saxons and their celebration of Eostre – the Goddess of Light and Fertility, whose earthly symbol was the rabbit.


German settlers in the U.S.A then introduced the story of the Easter bunny in the 1700s – children believed that if they behaved themselves, then they would be left a basket of eggs. The boys turned their hats into baskets and the girls did the same with their bonnets. We couldn’t resist including this adorable photograph of some little Easter bunnies! We have a funny animated ecards featuring a group of dancing Easter bunnies which you can view here.


Homemade Easter Eggs

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

If you feel like getting creative then why not try your hand at making some homemade Easter eggs? You can find a good recipe here. One of the perks of making your own Easter eggs is that you can mix and match different types of chocolate – you can make an egg which is half dark chocolate and half white chocolate or you can carefully mix two different types of chocolate together to create a marbled effect on your egg. Though the heating of the chocolate may not be appropriate for children to help with, children of all ages will love the opportunity to pipe their own shapes and Easter messages onto the eggs.

Why do we hunt eggs at Easter time?

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

One of the reasons that eggs are associated with Easter is because they conjure images of revival, renewal and rebirth. Historically, eggs were forbidden by Christians in the days leading up to Easter and so they became a treat when they were finally allowed on Easter day. So why do we hold Easter egg hunts? There are many explanations from all different cultures behind this but one of the reasons that spans across cultures is the belief that finding eggs brings good luck. Apparently, decorating Easter eggs is also an age-old tradition that people have been doing for thousands of years. The first chocolate Easter eggs were made in 19th Century France and  Germany.

So, now that you know a brief history of the Easter egg, you’d better get decorating/hiding/eating yours! We also have some EGG-cellent Easter ecards on the Katie’s Cards website.
