‘Why is the rabbit a symbol of Easter?’

The tradition of the so-called Easter bunny became popular in the 17th century in Germany. The custom involved children receiving small gifts (most commonly eggs) that were delivered by this friendly creature. The tradition arrived in Poland at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Since then, the bunny appears every Easter to give children sweets and small gifts. Why does the bunny bring holiday presents? There are many theories. In some beliefs, the bunny was considered a symbol of prosperity and fertility, and it was associated with spring, when Easter celebrations take place. Additionally, during early Christian times, bunnies symbolized those who had converted to the Christian faith.
