Original Easter table decoration with carrot and candy tablecloth
As soon as Easter comes, we almost always decorate our interiors with eggs and rabbits. Have you ever wondered where this tradition comes from? Is it because rabbits are cute and eggs are delicious? Well done, but the answer is to look elsewhere. At its origin, the Easter Bunny is an imaginary creature. A German legend tells that a woman, being poor, could not offer sweets to her children. For this reason, she decides to improvise and decorate the chicken eggs and hide them in the garden to surprise her children. When the children went to the eggshell, they saw a rabbit and thought it was he who had laid the eggs. The rabbit is also associated with fertility because it is one of the animals that breed very fast.
Modern Easter table decoration
For its part, the egg symbolizes the renewal of nature and germination. Coming from Christian culture, the egg is always specially decorated for Easter. Traditionally, it was a colored hard boiled chicken egg, as is still the case in Orthodox countries. Today, in many countries, it is often a chocolate egg. In France, as in Belgium, it is a traditional gift that is offered on the morning of Easter Sunday. In Switzerland, in certain regions in Germany, England and the United States, the symbol of Easter is a hare. It is he who assumes the mission of Easter eggs.
