Do you know why we give Easter baskets?
As I look at all of these ideas for Easter baskets, I wonder how a holiday like Easter has anything to do with bunnies, birds, or eggs. Easter is a day where a lot of people go to church and celebrate the day Jesus arose from the dead after the crucifixtion. However, it's also become a commercial holiday full of chocolate rabbits, Easter baskets, and colorful eggs. But like most weird holiday traditions, it's because it came from the blending of pagan and Christian traditions.
Some claim that the word "Easter" derives from "Eostre," who was a pagan goddess of spring and fertility. According to legend, Eostre found a bird dying from the cold and turned the bird into a rabbit so its fur would protect it from the cold. However, the rabbit still laid eggs like a bird.
In another version of the story, the bunny paints and decorates the eggs as gifts for Eostre to show his love and loyalty. I think that this is where Easter baskets come into the picture. Easter baskets usually include small gifts and chocolate and we give them to our children, whom we love.
So, the reason we give Easter baskets every year is because it's an expression of love and loyalty. Be sure to show all of your love this year with one of these Easter basket crafts!
