The 23 Most Famous Bunnies EVER: It’s Easter Every Day!

Reindeer have Christmas, groundhogs have Groundhog Day, and Easter? Easter is ALL about the rabbits. But what does a cute, adorable bunny have to do with the rebirth of Jesus (the sometimes forgotten star of the holiday)? It can be traced all the way back to the 13th-century in pre-Christian Germany. The goddess of spring and fertility, named Eostra, had the rabbit as her symbol. Fast-forward to today, and the bunny has become synonymous with Easter Sunday and one of the most iconic holiday mascots ever: the one and only Easter Bunny. To celebrate the rabbit, we have put together 23 of the most famous bunnies ever, from The White Rabbit to the Energizer Bunny to Bun E. Carlos. Check them out here:
