bunniesAnd speaking of stuffed toys, now is a great time to find those old stuffed bunnies and ducks and turn them into mantel ornaments. Add Easter grass, and scatter decorated eggs along the mantel to keep them company.

bunnies Tie wired gingham-checked ribbons into bows, and attach them to the edge of your mantel. Let the ends of each bow hang down various lengths from one to three feet. At the end of each ribbon, open a plastic egg, tape the ribbons end inside the egg, and force the egg shut. This creates a set of eggs dangling at different heights.

In others, perch decorated Easter eggs (real, plastic, wooden, or glass).

Easter holds a special meaning for people from all walks of life, rich and poor, young and old, male and female. For many people, Easter means fond memories of waking up to an overflowing Easter basket. To others it means special times with family and friends and to others Easter means building on past family traditions to create a special celebration for your own family.

There are a number of great and interesting facts about the Easter holiday, and it is great fun to delve into the history, facts and trivia of this special holiday. Some of the things you may not have known about Easter include:

  • The Easter egg roll on the White House lawn has been a tradition ever since 1878, and it remains one of the most popular events in Washington, D.C. each year.
  • The people of the Ukraine are thought to be the original egg decorators, and the process of creating those intricately decorated eggs is known as “Pysanky”. The Ukranians and others have been creating these intricately decorated eggs for over six thousand years, and some of their creations are worth a fortune.
  • We owe the ever famous chocolate bunny to the people of Germany. It was the Germans who first created edible Easter bunnies out of a combination of pastry and sugar. These special Easter treats were first baked in the early 1800s, and as Germans emigrated to the United States they brought their chocolate rabbits with them.
  • In Europe, it was common practice to hang decorated Easter eggs from tree branches, and this practice of creating Easter trees is becoming popular in the United States as well.
  • The egg as a symbol of fertility and new birth predates the Christian celebration of Easter. The egg has long been held to be a symbol of rejuvenation and rebirth. Decorated eggs have been found in Egyptian tombs, and the Greeks used to place eggs on the graves of departed loved ones.

    The beauty of Easter lies in its versatility. Easter can be either a somber religious celebration, a great chance to eat delicious candy and open presents, or a combination of both. No matter what your Easter celebration may hold, we hope you enjoyed these fun facts about this very special day.
