Who Invented The Concept Of The Easter Bunny?

I love the Easter Bunny! And I never realized how much I love the Easter Bunny until this year. He’s almost like a pseudo Santa of the spring in the sense that he’s always watching to make sure kids are being good. I have to admit that I have used the Easter Bunny to my advantage over the last few days to reinforce good behavior or say that the Easter Bunny is watching to get my daughter to get to bed. Hey, it worked!

I also really enjoy playing the Easter Bunny and making her Easter basket. I was so excited that I already started putting it together as you can see pictured. You never know what will come up this weekend, and being the planner that I am, thought I should just get it done while I had a little free time.

My daughter is obsessed with Frozen (just like every other kid) and she really is starting to get into Barbie. I left our Puddle Jumper on the plane on our way home from Florida, so I bought her a new once since we can’t live without it – literally. That thing is a life saver – literally. Then some of the usual candy, a cute dress that hopefully I can make her wear on Easter Sunday, and some princess jelly beans of course.

In case you were wondering about how the Easter Bunny originated, I got this info from Wikipedia, my favorite site when I need to find out something quick. See below:

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the “Easter Hare” originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide.

The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus or the Christkind, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holidays. The custom was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Franckenau’s De ovis paschalibus (About Easter Eggs) in 1682 referring to a German tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter eggs for the children. Demarcus Lawrence Jersey
