What is it with those eggs during Easter season? Why do we celebrate springtime with eggs, why do we color and decorate them? And what do rabbits have to do with it?
Well, as the title of this article already states it, eggs and rabbits are symbols of fertility and rebirth which corresponds to the season of spring time, where, after a long winter, everything comes alive and starts to grow again. According to the world mythology, the Germanic fertility goddess Eostra, might be the namegiver for this time of the year and she was said to have owned an egg-laying rabbit (I know, pretty weird. Try not to think too much about it... It only gives you headaches.) (The Oxford Companion to World Mythology, 2005).
