Why does the hare bring gifts?

The activities of the Easter bunny are an extremely interesting matter. It is not fully known where he came from and what his pedigree is, while it is certain that this earwig can bring a smile to the lips of most people. The tradition of bringing gifts by the hare originated in Germany. It was there, as early as the 17th century, that the hare appeared on the first day of Christmas to give colorful Easter eggs to children. In Poland, it took another two centuries for the tradition to spread. At first, the hare made its home in Silesia, Greater Poland and Western Pomerania, before starting to visit other parts of Poland as well. The mysterious stag is often mistaken for a rabbit, but the former is usually much larger and has longer ears. The motif of the hare can be found as early as in Greek mythology, where ear-like animals appeared at the side of Aphrodite. In early Christian culture, hares symbolized converts to the Christian faith. In folk beliefs, on the other hand, the animals were associated primarily with fertility. By their lifestyle, they soon also became harbingers of spring. The popularization of the hare motif was also greatly influenced by... Christmas cards. Until a dozen or so years ago, sending themed greetings was one of the inherent Christmas customs. In addition to strictly religious designs, there were also motifs of Easter eggs, chickens and hares. Auf diese Weise hat sich der Brauch, der nur in bestimmten Regionen Polens populär war, auch auf andere Gegenden ausgeweitet, und die Suche nach den Geschenken eines freundlichen Hasen ist Teil des Weihnachtsmorgens geworden. In this way, the tradition, which was popular only in some regions of Poland, has also spread to other areas, and the search for gifts from a friendly hare has become part of Christmas morning.
