We all know that the Easter bunny is a rabbit that sneaks into people’s homes the night before Easter and hides colored eggs, chocolates and for the very stylish ;) , Dello Mano Luxury Brownies . But questions remain - What does Easter have to do with bunnies ? Where did the Easter Bunny originate from? And  is the Easter Bunny contactable to tell him that Dello Mano brownies as  a great Easter gift and alternative to Easter Eggs? :)

Here's the result of the Dello Mano exploration.
Easter is celebrated in March- April and coincides with the to celebration of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The beginning of spring is the season of new beginning and revival. Some texts believe that the origin of the word Easter appears to lie in 13th century Germany, where the spring goddess Eostre was illustrated as a young woman carrying a basket of colored eggs and 2 baby hares. Thus the name Easter originated for the spring festival.
However, the eggs and rabbits are both a symbol of fertility and they have been used as a symbol of the beginning of new life for centuries. According to some researchers, the Persians used to give out eggs to celebrate the arrival of spring. As the hare and rabbit are the most fertile animals, they were used in various rituals to promote and celebrate fertility.
As Christianity spread, Easter and giving eggs were incorporated into the religion as a religious festival. But  our research suggests this symbolization was transformed into the Easter bunny bringing eggs, in Germany in the late 1500s and early 1600s. The Germans introduced the idea of Oschter Haws, which was a rabbit who laid a nest of colored eggs for good children and later sugar and candy bunnies were made to celebrate the holiday. The story goes that when the Germans migrated to the United States and beyond in the 1700s, the concept of Oschter Haws also went along, which later evolved into the present day Easter bunny!

Here in Australia not only was the concept of the Easter bunny introduced but also real rabbits. The rapid rabbit growth soon resulted in them becoming a pest as they began destroying many habitats, causing endangerment to many local animals. Due to this reason, Australians have tried hard to officially remove the Easter Bunny and substitute it with the Easter Bilby.
The Easter Bunny or Bilby, over time has become the most anticipated character after Santa Claus.

Today the much awaited Easter bunny not only brings colored eggs but also goodies like the delicious chocolate and luxurious Dello Mano Belgian Chocolate brownies.
