I meant to give this information before Easter, but here it is anyway.
The Easter Bunny is a German folktale. The real story is that there was a German widow who colored her eggs to hide them from animals and humans. She hid them in the nearby bushes. One day and little girl and boy were playing. While they were playing, they saw a rabbit. They chased the rabbit. They saw that it had stopped in a bush. They chased after the rabbit. The rabbit got away. When the children got to the bush, they saw the colored eggs. They said that the rabbit left them the colored eggs. This happened around the Easter holiday. That is why we speak of the “Easter Bunny” and the colored eggs.
