In Germany “Easter Egg Hunts” are organized on either Easter Sunday or Easter Monday. Germans share a special relationship with the eggs and they are beautifully hand painted here in Germany. Chocolate eggs and bunnies are also very popular among children along with colourful eggs. Egg Bunny is basically a tradition that came from the Germans and bunnies were considered a symbol of “fertility”. During 17th century, it was considered that eggs came from the Easter bunnies and later on these bunnies became mainstream. This is how the idea of egg hiding Easter bunny came into being, the very first time from the Germans.
