Bunny Rabbit as Symbol
Since ancient times, rabbits and bunnies have long been associated with spring and fertility.
Eostre, the ancient anglo-saxon Goddess of Spring, had a hare as her companion.
Later, Christians changed the symbol of the hare to what we now know as the Easter Bunny.
Some people think that the Easter Bunny got started in Pennsylvania in the 1700’s with the Germans. They told their children about an egg-laying rabbit called “Osterhase,” or “Oschter Haws.”
Kids made a nest where the creature could lay eggs, which then later became replaced w/ baskets, and candy and chocolates.
Rabbit as Symbol: Other Meanings
A rabbit in a home can also be a symbol of a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, whereas rabbits consume mainly greens and vegetation.
Rabbits may be seen as related closely with the Earth, as they are low to the ground, and they live partially in the ground.
They are known to stay focused even within chaos, and are also known as “tricksters.” An example of this is bugs bunny. Rabbits stay one step ahead of their enemies.
Bunny rabbits can also teach us self worth, as most every rabbit perceives itself to be head of the pack, and we learn this from observing them.

A Little History on Lamps
Did you know that the first actual incandescent lamp prototype was made in 1802 by Sir Humphrey Davy?
It consisted of a thin strip of platinum used as the filament that was connected to a battery.
When the current passed through the filament, it heated up, and as a result, it emitted light.
It was not until the 1870’s when the first commercially suitable light-bulb was made by Thomas Edison and Sir Joseph Swann, independent of each other.
Without the work of people like Swann and Edison, we wouldn’t have cool stuff today like this pink bunny lamp above.
We found a really interesting website about the History of Lamps called historyoflighting.net.
