The tradition that associates rabbits or hares with Easter is several centuries old. These mammals are considered as symbols of fertility and new life that is born at the beginning of spring. Rabbits are also associated with energy and activeness. For these reasons this small rodent has gradually become a companion of a basket full of Easter eggs, which symbolize life and vitality as well. Today the image of this animal is supported by the process of commercialization of religious feasts – a rabbit or hare that is displayed in a proper way is attractive particularly for children, especially if they associate it with an Easter gift.
