Bunnies and Eggs

What in the world does bunnies and eggs have to do with the Resurrection? That is a question I have been wondering about my whole life.Today, I found out that bunnies and eggs refer to fertility.Easter is a pagan holiday. It was named after the pagan god Ishtar.I thank God that I have always referred to this Sunday as Resurrection Day.Celebrating the fact that Jesus rose!

One thought on “Bunnies and Eggs

  1. The early Christians often used the symbols already in place to teach the pagans about Christ, and then gave it new meaning. St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the trinity- three in one. Christians wreaths were used to symbolize eternity and candle lit trees to symbolize the new light coming into the world to dispel the darkness. . The eggs also symbolize our new life in Christ. Bunnies however…hmmm?
