An Easter basket is not complete without the addition of an Easter rabbit. The Easter Rabbit (or Easter Bunny) is often shown as a cute, furry creature who hops along with a basket full of candy treats and colored eggs to give to children. The long tradition holds that the rabbit hides the basket in the garden for the children to find upon waking up on Easter morning.
Some historians state that the tradition of the rabbit at Easter got its start in Germany more than a hundred years ago, while other historians theorize the tradition goes back to the Roman Empire. The precise origins of the rabbit and Easter are disputed by many historians, but this tradition is now firmly planted in many cultures.
