I wish you a Happy ‘Bunny’ day

Yes, here I am with another project for the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog which theme is ‘Easter’ and the image I must work with is this one:

Hmmm, all of a sudden the image of this rabbit in the middle of the countryside contemplating a pile of decorated eggs (yes, Easter eggs, of course!) came into mind.., so I begun to colouring my background…

While I was rubbing colour with my fingers I was thinking: what a long-eared, cotton-tailed creature known as the Easter Bunny, and decorated eggs, have to do with Easter …  So, I checked it out and found that According to the University of Florida’s Center for Children’s Literature and Culture, the origin of the celebration, and the origin of the Easter Bunny, can be traced back to 13th-century, pre-Christian Germany, when people worshiped several gods and goddesses. Eostra was the goddess of spring and fertility, and feasts were held in her honor on the Vernal Equinox (Equinocio de Primavera). Her symbol was the rabbit because of the animal’s high reproduction rate. Furthermore, Spring also symbolized new life and rebirth; and eggs were an ancient symbol of fertility… Wwoowww, how interesting,  isn’t it?..,  as I kept working on my background, images of my childhood flooded my mind..

When I was little  and living with my aunt, she used to tell me this saying: ‘You will never go to bed without learning something else” (=nunca te acostarás sin saber una cosa más)…. She was so right!… Petra was her name and although she is in the spirit world now, I always have her on my mind, and in fact today she has been on my thoughts more intensively. I guess she was happy knowing I was going to mention her here..jejeje….  She must like my posts… Thank you aunt, I love you so much…(and I miss you!)…

Thank you all for visiting my space in the cyber world and I hope you’ve got inspired in whichever way you needed it to be today…

We all need a friend who is all ears
