Hunt for “Bears” in Calhoun County

A BRIEF HISTORY OF The Easter Bunny

At first blush of course, it can seem like quite a stretch from the resurrection of Jesus Christ to the appearance of a fluffy, chocolate toting bunny. When we look a little deeper, the connection of eggs, rabbits and Easter becomes a bit clearer. For millennia, eggs have symbolized new life and have been The un given as gifts at Easter time.
