What Do The Symbols Mean?
Easter comes during spring and celebrates new life. Which springtime animals better represent fertility than the rabbit or the hare, which produce so many offspring?
Among the popular Easter symbols, the lamb is by far the most significant of this great feast. The lamb is said to symbolize Jesus, the lamb of God, as it embodies purity and goodness, but also represents sacrifice.
The chick, hatching out of the egg, symbolizes new life or re-birth.
