An Homage to the Season

Enjoy the season…A couple of quotes that speak to Easter and nature’s connection to this Spring holiday.

“What does the Easter Bunny have to do with Jesus? Her symbol was the rabbit because of the animal’s high reproduction rate. Spring also symbolized new life and rebirth; eggs were an ancient symbol of fertility. According to, Easter eggs represent Jesus‘ resurrection. The first Easter Bunny legend was documented in the 1500s.”

“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.”

Six years ago, I blended into the 8000+ population of Uzes for a month which is in the Gard department in southern France-near Nimes and just 45 minutes from the Avignon TGV station. And, yes, you do want to go there!.

Easter Sunday lunch: Rabbit food with a ‘side’ of fish.
Dessert! Sort of a custard bunny. Clever and delish!

Happy Easter however you acknowledge and celebrate!
