Last I checked there aren’t any mentions of the Easter bunny in the Bible.
In fact, I couldn’t even find anything that specifically mentions bunnies in the story of Noah’s Ark.
So why is a bunny so closely associated with this religious holiday? That is what we’ll cover on today’s Wonder Why Wednesday…
To answer the question of what a bunny has to do with Easter, I turn to the History Channel. The smart folks at the History Channel created a very cool video that explains where the bunny came from and many other Easter facts including:
- How you might know the Easter Fox rather than the Easter Bunny if you grew up in Germany
- How a religious ban helped make eggs popular at Easter
- Who is the man behind jeweled Easter eggs
- That over 90 million chocolate bunnies & 16 billion jelly beans are produced for Easter
