The Easter Bunny

Have you ever wondered how the Easter Bunny tradition came to be?


Here's an article that lays out the details:

As for how the specific character of the Easter Bunny originated in America, History.com reports that it was first introduced in the 1700s by German immigrants in Pennsylvania, who reportedly brought over their tradition of an egg-laying hare named "Osterhase" or "Oschter Haws." As the story goes, the rabbit would lay colorful eggs as gifts to children who were good β€” so the kids would make nests in which the bunny could leave his eggs, and would even sometimes leave out carrots in case the hare got hungry!

Eventually, the custom spread across America to become a widespread Easter tradition β€” and over time, the fabled bunny's delivery even expanded from just eggs to include other treats such as chocolate and toys.

After the Fires

Here is a great article that is not related to PBIS or anything directly. It is written by a young person for young people on this kids' experience. Jaxon Jones wrote a powerful first-hand account about what it was like to flee the Woolsey Fire, which burned 97,000 acres over the course of two weeks in California.
