A rabbit can mean a 10-year commitment, and shouldn't be a hastily-decided Easter gift.

However, there is one common food enjoyed by all who celebrate Easter (and I am certain some that don’t)—Easter bread. The bread itself has a long history. Baking buns as part of religious offerings dates back to when the Egyptians offered small round cakes to the goddess of the moon, each marked with a representation of her symbol, the horns of an ox. This was the early incarnation of the modern hot cross buns. In ancient Greece, bread consisting of flour and honey bearing a cross is actually where the word bun …
