Christians and many other Americans wake up and celebrate Easter each year on the first Sunday following the full moon after the spring equinox. The wonderful and mysterious roots of the holiday helped shape many of the traditions we know today. Most major holidays have an old connection with the seasons, and Easter is no exception. The spring equinox marks the time of the year when we come out of winter and the days are getting longer and brighter, making it the perfect symbol of hope and rebirth.
As a belief, the name of the "Easter" holiday is related to the Eostre - English goddess. Eostre was worshiped as a goddess of spring and fertility. Just as Eostre was the fertility goddess, the spring season is associated with new life, with the growth and reproduction of both plants and animals. Most historians believe that the rabbit is a symbol of Eostre, as the rabbit is a perfect representation of the season. It is thought that the rabbit gradually turned into the Easter bunny we know today. Eggs were also a clear and specific symbol of the new life and the birth of ancient societies around the world.
