I’ve always found the commercialization of, particularly the religious, holidays a little disconcerting, even if I do give in to the commercialization from time-to-time. I do have a cute bunny bowl I bring out this time of year, buy chocolate Easter eggs, dye eggs, make holiday cookies for my coworkers, and I have Santa decorations as well as a Nativity and a Crucifix–but why? Well, today I decided Google could probably answer that question for me. I found this tidbit about the traditions of Easter, and low and behold, the bunnies and eggs are the ORIGINAL symbols of Easter. Something I never knew, but hey, you learn something new everyday, right?
