What are the origins of the Easter Bunny?

Spring rituals traditionally celebrate life, rebirth, the return of growth, & fertility. Pre-Christian Europeans celebrated the return of Spring with ceremonies honoring the Triple Goddess, who signified the Mystery of the Trinity. (Three is the geometric requirement for moving beyond a point, to a line, to giving form.) The Triple Goddess was believed to live in the Earth, & to find her, you needed to be guided by her helper, the Hare.

In Britain, the Lunar Goddess of Fertility was called Eostre or Ostara, & the egg was used as her symbol. The Orphic Egg represents the full potential & birthing of the the cosmos.

However you celebrate the rebirth of Spring, may your life blossom & be fruitful!
