Roundup: I Want Some Bunny to Love

While most people associate the Easter bunny with the Christian holiday, according to Saxon tradition, the Easter bunny is the earthly symbol of the pagan goddess Eostre who was worshiped in the pagan festival of Eastre, which was a celebration of Spring. Only much later, when Germans brought the legend to the United States, was the Easter bunny integrated into Easter Sunday festivities.

Whatever the stories surrounding the origin, I love the Easter bunny — heck, I love all bunnies (unless they get in my garden, and then I get hopping mad). However, as long as they stay out from under the garden fence, I'm happy to decorate with these long-eared cuties. Check out the widget for some of my favorite bunny finds.
