Easter Bunny Trivia

Easter Bunny

  • Oddly enough it was German settlers in Pennsylvania Dutch country who first introduced an Easter hare, the Osherhas, in the United States in the 18th century.
  • A German physician and botanist, Georg Franck von Frankenau, first wrote about the Easter bunny in Alsace. He held the distinctions of being a knight of the Holy Roman Empire and a Fellow of the Royal Society.
  • It’s because both rabbits and eggs are fertility symbols that the egg-laying Easter bunny came to be.
