Easter Costume Ideas
Easter is the most important celebration of the year for most Christians. It commemorates Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead to absolve humans of original sin. While over the two millennia since the event it celebrates, many different Easter customs have arisen.
One of the most common Western customs is that of Easter eggs, delivered by the Easter Bunny. Eggs symbolize new life and are dyed in bright colors for joy. For early Christians, eggs were forbidden food during the 40 penitential days of Lent before Easter. (A few modern Christians in some parts of the world still observe this.) On Easter, they are once again allowed, and churches in some places bless them.
So where does the Easter Bunny come in? Rabbits don't lay eggs, chickens do! The Easter Bunny (or if you prefer Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a tradition older than Christianity. To pre-Christian pagans, rabbits were a fertility symbol. When the first Christians couldn't stamp out the rabbit symbol, they adopted it and re-purposed it. Along with eggs, lambs and baby chicks, the bunny also symbolizes new life.
