Everybody loves presents. I love a good, thoughtful gift, and I’m sure you do too. Waking up on Sunday morning to a pretty basket stuffed with Easter gifts or made just for you is one of what makes Easter so great.
But, why do we give Easter baskets to each other? The Tradition dates back Centuries ago when pagan people would pray to Eostre, goddess of Spring and Fertility. Eostre was depicted in ancient art as wielding a woven basket in her arms.
Over the ages, however, this symbolism of renewal has evolved considerably. Medieval Christians would bring baskets of food to their priest to bless to mark the end of Lent.
In later European folklore, it was believed that a mythological rabbit would bring a basket filled with colored eggs for good children on Easter morning. And till today, families still enjoy exchanging baskets of goodies with one another.
An Easter basket is packed with Easter gifts: chocolate candy, stuffed bunny toys, decorated eggs, marshmallow chicks.
