Best Easter Quotes

Christians have celebrated Easter for centuries, and other symbols and traditions have been incorporated throughout the time since Easter was first recorded as celebrated in the 2nd century.

Next, rabbits and hares gained their place and became synonymous with Easter since they symbolize fertility which originated from the Egyptians and Greeks. Meanwhile, German Protestants created the Easter Hare that brought eggs and chocolates to children. Other Easter symbols also include ham, bread, hot cross buns, lily, and lamb.
