Who came up with the idea of an egg laying bunny?
The Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania and transported their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws.” Children made nests for Osterhase’s colored eggs.
I love this illustration by Rosieferne on Amazon handmade. She gets it. Easter bunnies are silly, but an Easter platypus makes total sense. See more of Rosieferne’s work on Amazon, and enjoy your holiday however you celebrate it.
