Happy Easter Factoids

Brightly colored eggs, cute little bunny rabbits and the magic of Spring. Happy Easter! Enjoy the goodness! You can thank the German settlers who arrived in Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s for this holiday. It was these creative folks who introduced the arrival of Osterhase the lovable bunny who delivers edible Easter Eggs made of pastry and sugar.

Oh, and Easter egg coloring is said to have started in Persia in 3000 B.C. to celebrate the first day of spring. The Easter Sunday tradition kicked in to gear by the Christians shortly after the Civil War. Good fortunes during your Easter Egg hunt.
