Where did the Easter Bunny come from?

The CHICKS were in charge around here this Spring and Easter season...
...and they had a playful roost on our dining room table, enjoying the afternoon delight of sunshine every day.

We had big fuzzy baby chicks, just hatched from delicate shells...

...old chicks {mine I made out of papier mache` when I was about the same age as my son is now}...

...little chubby chicks who glow in the dark...


...and my childhood books about enchanted chicks! 

Old German folklore has a tale about how the Easter Bunny came about ~ the tale is about a bird who was turned into a rabbit

Ah, the Enchanted Egg is finally explained.

The rabbit was so happy with his new shape: floppy ears, four legs, whiskers, and a nose that never stopped moving...

{He even had chocolate money made with his fabulous face on each edible note.}

...that he celebrated his first Spring by giving gifts of something he knew how to make when he was a chick ~ EGGS!

Hand painted eggs with flowers, polka dot eggs, chocolate eggs, even scrambled eggs {for Easter morning breakfast, of course}.

And to this day, the Bunny Tales continue to bring all of us the joy each Easter season,

celebrating the re-birth of life and the beginning of a fresh new season ~ Spring!

Hopping that all of you had a happy and blessed Easter holiday.

Thank you for spending a little time with me.

Buona Pasqua, as they say in Italy or...
