Why do we have Easter eggs?
A lot of us may chomp on chocolate eggs at Easter, but originally eating eggs was not allowed by church leaders during the week leading up to Easter (known as Holy Week).
So any eggs laid that week were saved and decorated to make them Holy Week eggs, that were then given to children as gifts.
Why do we have Easter Bunny?
The story of the Easter Bunny is thought to have become common in the 19th Century.
Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter of babies (called kittens), so they became a symbol of new life.
Legend has it that the Easter Bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are also a symbol of new life.
This is why some children might enjoy Easter egg hunts as part of the festival.
It doesn't do all the work alone though!
