Q & A's about Easter Traditions
Easter is always the first Sunday following the full moon on or after the spring equinox, which is the first day of spring.
Where did the Easter Bunny come from?
The hare or rabbit is a symbol for the moon in Egyptian mythology. Since the Easter date is associated with the full moon, over the years the rabbit has become to be associated with Easter. Today we know this rabbit as the "Easter Bunny".
Why do we decorate Easter Eggs?
The egg is the symbol of life. At one time, the Chinese would send red eggs to family and friends to celebrate the birth of a baby like an announcement card. Also, in the Ukraine, eggs were exchanged at Easter and the kids would rub their cheeks with color to give them a rosy glow.
Where did the tradition of the Easter Parade come from?
Many cultures would have spring parades when they would dress up in new clothes to welcome the spring. Some places considered it bad luck to be seen on Easter in old clothes. Today, many people still dress up on Easter, and many buy new Easter outfits.
Why do people have Easter Baskets?
In Germany and Switzerland, children made nests of grass in their gardens for the Easter Bunny to fill with eggs. From this tradition, people now use baskets with many different colors of grass for the Easter Bunny to leave Easter Eggs and maybe some gifts!

Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Lee Frost
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Think about it.....
- Martin Luther King Jr.
