The Easter Still Life #4
Origins of Easter traditions: First, the holiday's name itself may have been derived from that of a Teutonic or Northern European goddess named "Eostre," a fertility goddess, who was often depicted as being accompanied by a rabbit. Others believe the word Easter may have come from a German misinterpretation. According to the website Religious Tolerance (www.religioustolerance.org), the Latin name given to the Catholic Church's celebration of Jesus' resurrection included the word "alba" or "white." But "alba" has a second meaning, "sunrise," so that when the holiday's name was translated into German, the word sunrise, which is "ostern" in German, was used. According to the website history.com, the exact origins of the Easter bunny are unknown, but some think that, because hares and rabbits are so prolific, they became symbols of fertility and new life, often celebrated during or around the Spring Equinox in some pre-Christian, pagan traditions. The website holidays.net says that the first known association of the bunny with Easter occurred in Germany, where writings from the 1500s connect the two. It was German settlers in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s who introduced the Easter bunny or "Oschter Haws" to America, and yes, this mythical German bunny did lay eggs — in "nests" fashioned from children's caps and bonnets, which eventually morphed into baskets filled not only with eggs but candy and other treats. The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany in the early 1880s but were not made of chocolate; they were pastry confections. The Easter egg itself, it seems, also has pre-Christian origins. Like the rabbit, the egg is an ancient symbol of new life and has long been associated with Spring, according to history.com. Ancient Greeks and Romans used eggs in festivals for resurrected gods and the egg is part the Jewish observance of Passover. In Christianity, the Easter egg is said to represent Jesus' resurrection. The painting or decorating of eggs for Easter dates back to the 1200s, according to history.com. One reason for this, some scholars suggest, is, since the egg was once a forbidden food during Lent, the 40-day period of fasting and penance leading up to the Christian celebration of the resurrection, people would decorate eggs as a sign that Lent was ending and then the eggs would be eaten on Easter Sunday. The more recent and, as some might argue, the more frivolous Easter traditions are the Easter bonnet and Easter candy. The Easter bonnet and Easter parade first occurred in New York City in the mid-1800s, when well-to-do ladies would attend church, then stroll along Fifth Avenue, showing off their new spring outfits and elaborately decorated hats, which were all the rage back then. It eventually turned into an Easter parade, which is still held in New York City today and in various other cities across America. Finally, the Easter candy that fills most children's' Easter baskets has its origins in 19th Century Europe when chocolate Easter eggs and bunnies were made and were given to children as edible symbols of Easter (and for some, another delicious way to end Lent).

Esmerelda (from Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame), in the "Easter Wonderland Parade" at Tokyo DIsneyland. Easter is celebrated from April through the end of June at Tokyo Disneyland, but it's the version of Easter that's all about bonnets, bunnies and eggs, with nary a religious overtone to be found. Activities include an Easter Egg hunt through the park (with brightly-painted eggs decorated like various Disney characters) and an Easter Bonnet party hosted by the Queen of Hearts and Minnie Mouse. The song that accompanies this parade is *insanely* catchy -- if you hear it once I dare you to get it out of your head! [Winner of the "Alan Menken" challenge in the Disney Photo Challenge group.]
