2013: Happy Easter - Happy Passover- Whatever You Celebrate, May The Day Be Wonderful

By Susan Duclos

Sunday March 31, 2013 is Easter Sunday. Passover 2013 began in the evening of March 25th and ends the evening of April 2nd.

Whatever holiday you are celebrating, may it be a wonderful one for you. If you celebrate neither, then have a happy Sunday.

[Update] Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs:

Rabbits have been associated with springtime since ancient times. It is believed that the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring, Eostre had a hare as her companion. The hare symbolizes fertility and rebirth. Later Christians changed the symbol of the hare to the Easter bunny.

The tradition is that the Easter bunny leaves Easter eggs on Easter Sunday. Parents hide eggs in the garden and the children go on an egg hunt to find them.

The idea of an egg-laying rabbit was taken to America in the 1700's German immigrants. They told their children to make 'nests' with their caps and bonnets, and if they were good the Easter bunny would leave them colored eggs.
