What came first – the chicken, the egg, or the bunny? Some claim that the word ‘Easter’ comes from Eostre, a pagan goddess of spring and fertility. According to early folklore, Eostre found a bird dying from the cold and turned it into a rabbit so its fur would keep it warm. Oddly, the rabbit still laid eggs like a bird. Another story has the bunny painting and decorating eggs and gifting them to Eostre to show loyalty and love. Could this be the reason why bunnies, birds and chicks are all associated with Easter? Whatever its origins, Easter is always a lovely reminder that spring is just around the corner. To help you get into the spirit this long weekend, check out Get Leashed’s collection of springy things inspired by glorious pastel shades reminiscent of jelly beans and Easter eggs.
