Fun Fact
Did you know...

...that the Easter bunny's arrival in the United States is thought to be tied to the arrival of German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania in the 1700s and brought with them their "Osterhase," an egg-laying hare. Children made nests for this creature to lay its eggs around Easter time. This custom spread across the United States and evolved to include chocolate and other sweets in decorated baskets instead of nests.
