The idea of the Easter bunny bringing eggs was a tradition first brought to the United States by early German settlers during the the 1700s, many of whom settled in Pennsylvania. Over many years, the Easter bunny has become the most accepted symbol of Easter around the world.
The Easter bunny, also called the Easter hare or spring bunny, brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy, and sometimes toys to the homes of children on the night before Easter, the same way Santa Claus delivered presents during Christmas Eve. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere in the house or garden for the children to find when they wake up in the morning, giving rise to the tradition of the Easter egg hunt. With Easter being a day of celebration of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, the legend of the Easter bunny and Easter egg hunt did not come from the Bible.
