Bunny and chick chibimonters
This months collection is inspired by Easter! 🐣🐰 As the bunny and egg themes are not really of religious origin, I did some digging and here are some fun facts about chocolate eggs and bunnies!
“The first chocolate eggs appeared in France and Germany in the 19th Century, but they were bitter and hard. As chocolate-making techniques improved, hollow eggs like the ones we have today were developed. They very quickly became popular and remain a favourite tradition with chocolate-lovers today.
The story of the Easter Bunny is thought to have become common in the 19th Century. Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter of babies (called kittens), so they became a symbol of new life. Legend has it that the Easter Bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are also a symbol of new life. This is why some children might enjoy Easter egg hunts as part of the festival.” (BBC)
Curiously, in Switzerland, Easter eggs are delivered by a cuckoo and in some parts of Germany by a fox, so for next year I might look more into this to do a whole collection with “easter pets”. For now, I really hope you enjoy this collection! ✨
