«...After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!'»
OK, the White Rabbit enjoys his own problems, that is why let it solved the labyrinths of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland, but we try to answer the question of Easter Bunny’s origin. It is the Rabbit that brings Easter eggs and sweets and the symbol of Catholic Easter. Easter rabbits dew their popularity to ancient Teutons, who esteemed them as sacred animals. However Germans were not the first ones who worshiped long-eared. Romans and Egyptians. And in Byzantium hares were considered as the symbol of sensuality and fertility.
Every country has its own Easter traditions, which are similar in many ways (painted eggs, rabbits). In, Britain for example, children long for Easter sweets that are left for them by Easter Bunny. Parents hide baskets with sweets and kids look for them. There are even special competitions on Easter eggs «Eggstravaganza». Kid, who find most of all is a winner and is given a prize.
Such competitions are held in restaurants as well as at homes. It is nice to celebrate Easter at home as everything is decorated with chocolate eggs, pretty baskets, nice sweet rabbits, tasty biscuits and other delicious desserts.
In order rabbits do not feel lonely in interior decoration souvenir cows and hens are used. But the most important aspect of this holyday for all Christians is to feel spiritual joy of Christ’s resurrection.
