Today is Easter. Christians celebrate this day to remember and rejoice in when Jesus Christ was resurrected three days after being crucified.
So, wait, what does the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs have to do with all of this? Well let's find out.
First, let's talk about Easter in general. It's named after the goddess of spring, Eastre. It was actually a festival that the pagan Anglo Saxons celebrated in honor of her. They celebrated it each year during the vernal equinox, or as many of us know it, Spring. Christians wanted to convert these pagans in a way most comfortable for them. Basically, they let them keep their festivals and celebrations, however, since Easter was during the time that the Christians honored and celebrated the resurrection of Christ, Easter was then turned into a Christian holiday.
