The German saying “Der April macht was er will“ (which translates to “April does whatever it wants”) shows its truth once again. Next to some sunshine, we also experience many cold, windy, rainy and sometimes even snowy days! However, when the sun does show itself, we do feel warm spring vibes thanks to the warmth on our skin, the chirping birds in the trees and all the bunnies jumping around… which fits perfectly to the upcoming easter holidays! But why do we even celebrate it?
Fun Facts: Easter Edition
Easter is primarily a Christian celebration of the resurrection of Christ. In fact, however, many Easter customs originate from even earlier times - namely the pagan culture - whose symbols were adopted by the church. The pagan celebrations were about driving away winter, invoking fertility and the resurrection of nature - the joys that spring still brings today! For this reason, Easter takes place on a different date every year - unlike Christmas, for example. The festival takes place on the first Sunday after the first full moon in spring.
Especially in spring, bunnies can often be seen in wide fields and meadows. And since they are considered to be particularly mating-friendly, bunnies are seen as a symbol of fertility and where thus chosen to surprise us with colorful Easter eggs! In the spirit of spring, we have also prepared some wonderful PICKMOTION postcards filled with adorable bunnies and cutely decorated eggs.
