The Easter Bunny is not a typical and traditional symbol for our Russian culture in the celebration of Easter. We are closer to krashenki, a festive cake and a small muffin in the form of larks. But recently, following the ever-increasing number of tourists who have been abroad, the cute Western Easter Bunny is becoming more and more popular with us. Moreover, he has the magical ability to collect colorful chocolate eggs in his nest, hidden in the most secluded corner of the house or garden. Such a wonderful property simply could not go unnoticed by our little sweet tooth. And now, following St. Nicholas, who only recently began laying out surprises for our children under pillows at night, the Easter Bunny has also almost trodden a path in our gardens. And so that it does not become overgrown with grass and does not get lost among the bushes, it is worth placing its symbolic images in the house.
