Easter is a holiday that has come to mean many different things, from its religious beginnings through to chocolate eggs and of course, the Easter Bunny!
The Easter bunny is something that may seem linked to the more modern traditions and indulgence of the Easter festivities, but its origins, in fact, stem back to 1682 and German folklore where an 'Easter Hare' would be the barer of Easter eggs, delivering them to children over the holiday period.
Hares and eggs originally had a range of different symbolic meanings that refer to fertility and the miraculous virgin birth, but now they're considered as much of an essential part of Easter that captures children's imaginations and satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth!
In the countdown to Easter, Past Impressions have put together a range of our favourite bunny themed cross stitch kits... So hop to it!
