Here we go again searching for eggs/ eggs/ eggs. A childhood memory which might be a pleasure thinking of each year. Finding an egg as an adult hidden by the easter bunny still is a good feeling, right?
Eastern is the highest Christian holiday that we know. But what about the bunny. How did it get involved in the whole story and what made it even a sex symbol in the end or even beginning. A short research to answer this question brings up that basically the easter bunny was there before the arrival of Christian church. In Pagan times Easter was called Ostara, a festival in occasion of the spring equinox. Giving birth to its babies early in the year the bunny is an allegory for fertility, growth and living. Same characteristics are combined with the egg which is reportedly carried out by the bunny. In former times fertility was a major concern of people. Easter bunnies and eggs date back to this pagan festival to stimulate and thank the fertility of nature. In short the bunny was kind of a sex and fertility god for the pagans. And there is the connection to the sex bunny. Bunnies are a symbol of sex. No wonder it was strategically chosen by Playboy to represent lust, enragement and sexual fantasy. Not absurd we guess.
Happy Easter Slasheurs! Find your bunny…
