As soon as Valentine's Day is over, department stores immediately switch gears and start displaying their Easter goodies. Jelly beans, marshmallow chicks covered in colored sugar, egg-dying kits, and of course chocolate bunnies have become the symbols that represent the Easter holiday.
I was born and raised Catholic, so obviously I know what the real meaning of Easter is as I assume most people do. But I've always wondered how the Easter Bunny became the "spokes-animal" for this holiday. After a few minutes of searching the web, I found my answer.
