It seems spring is finally upon us, here in Ottawa (touch wood). I know some of us were thinking, when snowstorms hit at the end of March, that winter would never end. Fortunately the sun is here and that means Easter is not too far away. Mind you, we don’t recommend you take off the snow tires just yet.

When I was little, I remember waking up with my sister on Easter morning, both of us eager to hunt for whatever the Easter Bunny had hidden in the living room. (There’s nothing quite like eating a mountain of chocolate for breakfast.) In honour of Mr. Bunny and the fast approaching holiday, we here at the Museum thought it would be fun to showcase a few artifacts from our collection that highlight the rabbit from different periods in time and around the world. Let’s hope they were all having a good hare day when their images were taken….sorry I had to put in just one.
