Kid's enjoy Easter egg hunts, games, live music @ Mitchelton
It is said that the Easter Bunny was brought to America by German immigrants in the 1700s and that the decoration of eggs dated back to the 13th century; whatever the origins, Easter is a time of celebration and plenty of candy and chocolate! Why the Rabbit? Rabbits give birth to a large litter of kittens, as they are called, and are a symbol of new life and rebirth.
Described in the New Testament Easter Sunday is Resurrection Day, a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead after his crucifixion by the Romans. The Pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare. The exchanging of eggs is an ancient custom as well as the baking of hot cross buns. It is noted in the Old Testament that the Israelite's baked sweet buns for an idol. In the Northern Hemisphere, Pagans celebrate Easter in conjunction with the Spring Equinox, while the religious culture celebrates the resurrection.
