origin and provenance of the Easter bunny

Holzschnitzerei OsterhaseThe funny, colorful Easter bunnies find their origin in the 18th century, when the miners from the Erzgebirge wanted to improve their household budget in winter with carvings. Because of the closure of mining some families had to shift entirely to the art of carving, which meant that today there is a whole variety of magnificent works of art. Candle archs, Christmas pyramid and Easter decoration - in every masterpiece from Seiffen and the Erzgebirge the virtues of craftsmanship is incorporated.

But even before that, the Easter bunny was already a typical motif for spring, the fertility and the rebirth of Jesus. The connection between Easter bunnies and Easter, on the other hand, most likely dates back to the Middle Ages. During Lent, in addition to meat, eggs were not on the menu of the bourgeois. Thus, it was easier to pass on the eggs, which were in abundance in the spring, as a lease to the feudal lords. Incidentally, the same was true for rabbits and hares.

The Easter bunny was first mentioned in writing in the writings of Johannes Richier, who wrote in 1682 about the Easter bunny, who hid Easter eggs for children and simple-minded people. At the latest since the Easter bunnies year after year in chocolate shape in the tall grass waiting to be found, the rabbit, along with the traditional Easter lamb, has established itself as a symbol of Easter.

> Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions about the Easter Bunny

What does the Easter Bunny have to do with Easter?

There are many stories about how the Easter Bunny came to Easter. Easter is the highest and most important festival for Christians. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated. Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. But the pagan spring festival "Ostaria", where the awakening spring is welcomed, and the "Passover" celebrated by Jews are also an explanation. Rather, Easter customs developed from the spring festival of the pagans, held in honor of various goddesses of fertility. And here we can close the loop on the Easter bunny. The hare is one of the first animals to have offspring in spring - and in a large number of rabbit babies. So what could represent fertility better than the rabbit?

Why is the Easter Bunny coming?

In many countries around the world, the long-eared is a symbol of fertility. As a sign of life and rebirth and as a tribute to the fertility goddess Eostre, the Easter bunny found Easter.

That's why particularly large and strong Easter bunny helpers are chosen, because they have to carry the heavy baskets and backpacks that can hold a lot of Easter eggs.
