Why are bunnies and eggs part of Easter?
Easter used to be a pagan celebration of fertility, and bunnies breed very quickly. And eggs are also a symbol of new life. These symbols stayed when we started to celebrate the new life we have in Christ when He died and rose again. Okay, class dismissed. If your parents are here, you can leave with them. Have a great week! Feedback? Did you like this? Would you like more of these? Or are you thinking, ‘Please, Luke, don’t give us any more of your answers to random Bible questions!’ Be honest. I think this kind of thing is important, but I don’t want to bore you or drive you batty.
