The Easter Bunny

Author Amanda Borenstadt explores old customs, saying:
The Hare was a pagan symbol for the ancient German people. The Easter Bunny or "Osterhas," was brought to America with German immigrants, who were Protestant. Now this is a little funny because from my experience it's typically the Protestants who complain that Catholics have too many "pagan" traditions. (Read entire article.)

So the Easter Bunny is both "pagan" and Protestant? It's as funny as it is ironic!

Happy Easter, Elena! <3
