Easter is just a hop, skip and a jump around the corner, friends! And that means Spring is close at hand as well. It’s probably fair to say that we all have had enough of the winter blues and we are more than ready for Spring to bloom. And chocolate. We’re all ready for another excuse to stock up on chocolate, right?
Like all great holidays, Easter is surrounded by an abundance of chocolate treats and many other sweets. But that’s not entirely what it’s all about. Whether you celebrate Easter as a religious holiday and the conclusion of Lent, or as a festival for the coming of Spring, Easter is ripe with symbolism. Eggs, rabbits and cute yellow chicks are cute symbols for Spring and new life, which is what Easter is essentially all about. Historically, the egg became the symbol of Easter as it was given up for the Lent and was a plentiful treat when allowed back into the diet. And the bunny, or hare as it originated, for obvious reasons was a symbol for fertility and prosperity. The eggs and bunnies became chocolate in the 19th century and for the sake of the Easter egg hunt, it’s probably a very good thing to have made the change to chocolate eggs instead of real ones.
The magic spirit of the Easter Bunny isn’t just fun for little kids. It’s also for big kids too! Big kids like us here at The Newget Kompany. We don’t want to just patiently wait for the Easter Bunny like everyone else. This month we want to BE the Easter Bunny, and we want you to help us put the “hare” in “share” this month.
