Easter eggs & rabbits

As in many other countries, the tradition has it that the Easter rabbit hides eggs to children who enjoy looking around the garden.

But precisely because the rabbits for Easter and what focus with the resurrection of Christ? At first glance nothing. But this is not completely true, the rabbit is a symbol of life and fertility, as well as the egg.

For the ancient Greeks was the rabbit the animal of  Aphrodite. Why then the Easter rabbit hides painted eggs, is not entirely clear. One explanation may simply be that the chickens would not be able to do so.

Anyway children know that their task is to find painting eggs hidden by the rabbit and that those who succeed in finding may decide to keep the eggs or share them with others.

In South Tyrol children waiting for the whole year to find the eggs, also your children on a holiday in South Tyrol can relive the thrill of an ancient tradition and have fun.
