The Easter Bunny is a mythological rabbit who brings presents and sweets to
children on Easter Day!!
The Easter bunny was introduced to American folklore by the German settlers
who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700's.
The Easter bunny probably has its origin in pre-Christian fertility
tradition. The hare and the rabbit were the most fertile animals known and they
served as symbols of new life during the blossoming Spring season.
The bunny as an Easter symbol appears to have its origins in Europe, where it
was first mentioned in German writings in the 1500's.
The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany during the early 1800's,
and were made of pastry and sugar.

Hot Cross Buns and Lent
As Easter marks the end of the Lenten fast, food is an important part of
this festival. Wheat is another symbol of life and on Good Friday many
people in Europe and North America eat hot cross buns.
There is a centuries-old children's rhyme remembered in the UK; this
familiar nursery rhyme, "Hot cross buns," originates from the call of the
street vendors who sold them in Elizabethan times. [1533-1603]

Hot Cross Buns History
Dating back to medieval times, the buns were traditionally eaten on Good
Friday, but they are now popular all around the Easter season. These sweet
treats, fragrant with fruit and spices, are marked with a cross, either
slashed into the dough before baking, or drizzled on in icing afterwards. The history of hot cross buns dates far back to the pre-Christian era. It is
thought that they are descendants of the small cakes offered to Eostre, the
goddess of spring. They may have been marked with a cross even in ancient
times, to represent the four quarters of the moon. In later centuries the
church, unable to stamp out ancient pagan traditions, decided instead to
"Christianize" the buns by associating the cross with that of Jesus.
Paschal bread, made in a round shape, is very popular in Eastern Europe
[in Russia it is known as paska.]
The German Easter loaf is Osterstollen and in the Netherlands people eat
a sweet bread filled with raisins and currants called paasbrod.
