Bunny is one of the cutest animals, and despite the fact that bunnies are often a symbol of cowardice and fearfulness, Bunny Emoji is more often used in a more positive sense, because this icon can compete in its touchingness only with a kitten. However, even more often the Bunny Emoji is used in messages related to Easter. Today we will tell you where this tradition came from.

🐰 The Bunny Emoji was assigned the code U+1F430, with which it was added to the Animals and Nature section of the Unicode 6.0 standard in 2010.

Meaning of the Bunny Emoji

The Bunny, like the egg, has long been considered a symbol of life and fertility. In addition, in the Middle Ages, peasants had to pay their landlords rent on Clean Thursday, which they usually paid in produce. Since the peasants had a particularly large amount of eggs because of the preceding Lent, they boiled them and gave them to the landlord for a share. With eggs, peasants often brought their landlords many dead hares that they had shot in their fields.

So the combination of “eggs and bunnies” was formed. Adults began to tell children that eggs were brought by the Easter Bunny.

The legend of the Easter Bunny is first documented in the 16th century. In 1680, the first account of a rabbit laying eggs and hiding them in a garden was published. In the 18th century, immigrants from Germany carried the legend of the Easter Bunny to the United States. That’s why the descendants of those immigrants had a tradition of giving marzipan bunnies to their children at Easter. Then this custom spread throughout the United States.

Moreover, with its ability to reproduce quickly, the hare has been a symbol of fertility and lovemaking since antiquity. Because of this connection with the feminine, it was also considered a lunar animal. The hare became the animal of the goddess of love Aphrodite, as well as an attribute of the goddess Hecate. Its strong connection with the female deities made it a symbol of fertility and the rebirth of life.

An animal and fast-footed messenger of Hermes (Mercury), the hare was also the sacred animal of Aphrodite (Venus) and Eros (Cupid), the Greco-Roman deities of love. In Germanic-Scandinavian mythology, the hare is an emblem of Freya and Hulda, goddess of the moon.
