Easter facts:

The first record of Easter dates back to the 2nd century, although it is believed that people celebrated the resurrection of Jesus before then. Early Christians used to celebrate the resurrection every Sunday until they adopted the then-pagan celebration of Easter, instead dedication the whole day to Him, then annually.

The first recorded use of decorated eggs was in the 13thcentury, as Jesus rising from the Tomb is associated with the emergence of new from an egg shell. Which is why eggs eventually became an official symbol of the resurrection.

The Easter bunny originated in Germany, the concept of the Easter bunny delivering eggs and sweets started there. The tradition is first recorded in 16th century Germany, and sprung to life in legend as rabbits are believed to a symbol of new life in many cultures. The German legend of the Easter Bunny tells the story of a woman who plants hidden decorated eggs throughout the town on occasions of famine. Upon finding eggs, children would then see a big bunny hopping off.

Lastly, the tradition of bunnies on Easter originated from Protestant communities in Europe. Although it began in the 17thcentury, it only became common in the 19th century. They believed that the Easter bunny lays, decorates, and hides the Easter eggs.
