9. About Easter
In the Christian world, Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ. On the third day after his crucifixion (Good Friday), the New Testament tells us that he arose from his grave and appeared to his disciples and ascended to Heaven…this is celebrated by Christians every year on Easter Sunday. The rabbit is known for its reproduction prowess (hence the term “multiplying like rabbits”) and is seen as having special powers to help humans reproduce, which symbolizes fertility and the egg is also a symbol of fertility, rebirth and new beginnings…which celebrates the death and resurrection of Christ. And chocolate? You can thank the Europeans for that. It began in the early 19th century and it was mainly France and Germany that decided to take this on.
