The Easter Bunny is called upon each year in Spring to bring chocolate eggs and goodies to children on Easter Sunday. The Easter Bunny originated from Pagan folklore as a story about a fertility goddess named Ēostre, it’s believed that it was adopted by Christianity in an attempt to align the two religions. Ēostre’s associated symbols included the hare and the egg which have represented new life since ancient times. This explains why eggs are delivered by a bunny and not the chicken as most people would expect! Smiffys have a variety of Easter Bunny costumes for you to dress up in this Easter to make any egg hunts extra special. There’s White Rabbit costumes available for both adults and kids if you wanted to keep things traditional, or our Vintage Rabbit and March Hare costume kits are perfect if you’re hosting your own Easter party for children!
