Easter Bunny Wreath Floral Coloring Page
The exact origin of the Easter symbol being a rabbit is not known, but there are several different theories about its source. One theory suggests that in German culture, rabbits were chosen as an Easter symbol because they symbolize fertility. Rabbits are known for giving birth during this time of year, and therefore are associated with ideas of rebirth and renewal.
Another theory suggests that rabbits are one of the symbols associated with Christ’s resurrection and rebirth in Christianity. Rabbits represent awakening and rebirth because a single pair of rabbits can quickly multiply, symbolizing rebirth and fertility. However, the use of a rabbit as an Easter symbol did not become widespread until the 17th century in Germany, and it only gained worldwide popularity after that. Today, chocolate bunnies, rabbit figurines, and other Easter-related decorations are commonly used.
