Easter Sunday

Easter is also called Pascha, Zatik, or Resurrection Sunday. Though the day may be celebrated by Christians for Jesus' resurrection, back in the 1700's German immigrants came to America along with their fable tradition of an egg-laying hare named "Osterhase". Kids were told the rabbit would lay colored eggs as gifts to the good children. Kids began making nests for the Easter bunny to leave the eggs, and leave carrots for the bunny in case he got hungry. Eventually, the custom spread across America and included other treats like chocolate and toys.
