'Hoppy' Easter from

Watch where you step this morning, there's a rabbit with a sweet tooth on the loose
Happy Easter from our team at (File)

Hopping along with the warmer weather, Easter makes its triumphant return today, which means sweet treats for some of Sudbury’s smallest scavengers.

They may be laid out for the young and young at heart, but watch where you step this morning. Hidden gifts from a certain thumper-footed rabbit could easily become a trip to the steam cleaners rather than a sweet Easter treat.

If you already have your Easter egg hunting basket spit-shined and ready to go, don’t be ashamed, turns out that people have been doing that since as early as the 1700s. While most of us would prefer an egg-shaped surprise rather than the goopy original in our Easter basket, the meaning behind the Easter Bunny and his gift giving have withstood the test of time.

Welcomed annually through events and art initiatives, spring is a time of rebirth, when our Earth returns to the lush garden that supports life on this planet six months of the year. During this time of new beginnings, Christianity commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his crucifixion in the holiday known as Easter or Easter Sunday.

While rooted in pagan and non-denominational tradition, the holiday is celebrated in a variety of ways, including a Lenten fasting and Holy Week observance by Christianity’s global community. Whether you choose to celebrate modestly, with a candy egg or two, or see today as just another lazy Sunday, from, Happy Easter. 

Now we know that not all Easter Bunnies are created equal (like seriously who is making these costumes) which makes for some pretty hilarious holiday photos. Send photos of your funniest, heartwarming or downright creepy Easter moments to for the chance to be featured in our Easter gallery.
