Author: A splinter The Easter bunny has become a symbol of Easter just recently, and ask someone for what merits, not everyone will answer. Not to mention the people of the older generation, who generally have never heard of such a character. However, there is no single version of the establishment of a rabbit as a paschal symbol. According to one version, the Easter rabbit becamethe savior of all the famous ark. Legend has it that the ark, during its long voyage, had a hole in the bottom and would inevitably sink. If not for our eared-for-eared hero who closed it with his tail, for which he received such a high role in the main Christian holiday. The second version relates us back to the pagan pre-Christian era, to Germany. Rabbits were considered the main assistants to the goddess of fertility and spring rebirth, Eostra, which the Germans revered most. And due to the fact that Easter is always celebrated in the spring, the rabbit became Paschal. But the idea to assign to rabbits an unusual role for them to carry eggs is attributed to the Goethe himself. For the entertainment of his guests, the poet hid colorful eggs under the bushes in his garden, and when they found them, claimed that they had brought their Easter bunny. And to this day, the children on Easter morning are looking for nests with chocolate eggs and gifts, believing that they are brought, of course, by the rabbit. When this tradition has come to us, our children liked it and they also made nests for the rabbit . However, adults do not mind decorating their house with such a sweet Easter symbol.
