Easter will be celebrated on Sunday. Check out some fun facts about this spring holiday.
While the exact origins of the Easter Bunny are unclear, the History Channel points to the fact that rabbits, known to be prolific procreators, are an ancient symbol of fertility and new life. Some hold that the origin of the Easter Bunny ties into the Anglo-Saxon festival of Eastre, the spring goddess, whose symbol was a rabbit. However, the rabbit became associated with the celebration of Easter in America thanks to German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania in the 1700s, bringing along their tradition of an egg-laying hare called "Osterhase" or "Oschter Haws."
