For Easter, you’re probably enjoying time with family and friends, but where did all these traditions come from?
The traditional Easter bunny dates all the way back to the 1700’s when German immigrants settled in Pennsylvania. Children would make nests for colorful eggs, which eventually caught on across the U.S.
Since the 1800’s, New York City has had an Easter Parade. Back then, those who were considered “high class” would leave church and walk outside showing off their new spring outfits and hats.
Easter is the second most popular candy consuming holiday next to Halloween. Every year, the U.S. produces more than 90 million chocolate bunnies, 91.4 billion eggs, and 700 million peeps.
To this day, Easter is still celebrated with cute spring outfits, Easter egg hunts, parades, and of course, lots of candy!
