On Easter Sunday, a Chocolate Bunny vs. the Easter Bunny: What's It Gonna to Be?

Easter is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year. According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the 3rd day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday. The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to be between AD 26 and 36, traditionally 33.

Easter marks the end of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. The last week of the Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Easter is followed by 50-day period called Eastertide or the Easter Season, ending with Pentecost Sunday.

Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. It occurs during the spring, in March or April; the method for determining the date of Easter Sunday is complex, based on lunisolar calendar.

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many European languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are etymologically related or homonymous. The term "Pascha", from the same root, is also used in English to refer to Easter.

Easter customs vary across the Christian world, but decorating Easter eggs is a common motif. In the Western world, customs such as egg hunting and Easter Bunny extend from the domain of church, and often have a secular character.

Although it might be hard to the understand why people buy bunnies just because it’s spring—they do. But often spring time bunny purchases result in bunnies available for adoptions come winter time, or even years later when having a bunny for its ten-year life span hadn’t previously been considered.

Chocolate bunnies on the other hand are never a bad idea to buy--especially around Easter when they are readily available in all varieties of chocolate.

Here are 10 reasons to buy a chocolate bunny and not a real bunny this Easter:

1. If you decide you don’t like the chocolate bunny, you can buy another brand.

2. Real bunnies chew everything. With a chocolate bunny—you’re the only one doing the chewing.

3. Friends are much less likely to have an allergic reaction to your chocolate bunny.

4. A real bunny is much pricier than a chocolate bunny. In fact you can buy a carton of chocolate bunnies for the cost of one real bunny.

5. When you buy a chocolate bunny you don’t need to buy anything else, unlike a real bunny. Well, maybe just some jellybeans.

6. Real bunnies' eyes can see behind them without turning their heads. A chocolate bunnies eyes can be bitten off and eaten.

7. Real bunnies eat and poop at the same time. Sorry, you didn’t really need to know that.

8. Real bunnies can become pregnant again one hour after of giving birth. Fortunately chocolate bunnies don’t reproduce.

9. A real bunny doesn’t like it when you trim its toenails. Chocolate bunnies don’t usually mind.

10. You can bite off a chocolate bunny’s ears. Not a good idea with a real bunny.
