Easter

The traditional role of the Leporidae family (hares and rabbits) in connection with Easter was first mentioned in De ovis paschalibus (About Easter Eggs) by Georg Franck von Frankenau in 1682. He was commenting on customs in Alsace.

“I liked

Thanksgiving better be-
cause that was the day

father took us down to
the mills but Easter I

liked next best and the
rabbits died because we

fed them beet tops and
the lamb pulled up the

grass by the roots and
was sold to Mr. Page the

butcher”
