Easter Bunny Brings Big Hops and Big Hopes!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

Every year the Easter Bunny brings big hops and big hopes – and lots of Easter eggs.  We’re not sure which came first, the Chicken or the Egg.  But we do know Easter is the time of year when many thoughts turn to eggs, the universal symbols of rebirth.

Decorating them,

putting them in baskets,

looking for good spots to hide them,

and finding creative ways to eat them.

 

 

 

But on Easter, we also reflect on all the Good Eggs we know in life. Like you. (If you’re reading this post, or watching this video, we are talking about YOU!)

In a time when we seem to have so much division, Easter can return us to thoughts of a simpler time in our lives.  When we reflect on what makes us more alike than different. And a time when we celebrate the return of a vibrant season. When the earth comes back to life – hence, the egg as a universal symbol of rebirth.

And you may wonder – how did a “Silly Wabbit” become the symbol for Easter? It’s really not clear, but some believe it originated with the pagan festival of Eostre (Easter). She was the goddess of fertility whose animal symbol was a bunny.  Known for energetic breeding, it is thought that, from the pagan celebration, the Easter Bunny emerged as a natural symbol for fertility.

 

So, Easter – and Spring in general – represent resurrection and renewal in many different cultures. But to children it is one of those magical holidays filled with excitement and wonder. It’s a day of big hops – and big hopes.  And our hope is to always remember to view life through the eyes of a child.  With plenty wonder and joy at the season!

 

We wish you a happy and joyful Easter celebration.

Hi Debb and Bernie- I loved the sentiments in your post. It is a time not just for eggs and bunnies or chocolate and jelly beans but one of fresh starts and a new beginning. It should be a reflection of all that is good in our lives. 

Happy Easter...

There are indeed a lot of good eggs in the world and the older I get, the more I only want to spend time with the good eggs.  I consider you a very good egg and hope that I will get to meet you one day!
