I want to ask a probably VERY silly question, but being as I am from this southern country, where we do give chocolate eggs to children for Easter but rabbits are mammals who don't lay eggs and are not bothered at this time of the year... I always wondered what was the connection between the Easter rabbit and the sweets? what's the origin of the tradition? why do people (according to my movie-experience) have huge picnics where children go egg-hunting, with baskets like Little Red Riding Hood...? what's the legend or story behind it all?
anyone knows? thanks a lot! and Happy Easter for all!
