Friday Night Flicks: Bunny Island

The Easter Bunny is an odd sort of creature. A fertility symbol presumably leftover from pagan celebrations, he/she/it has become attached to one of the major celebrations of Christianity. And he/she/it leaves eggs (another fertility symbol) as gifts. I have always assumed that unlike Santa Claus, who is singular, the Easter Bunny exists in multiples. Now I think I know where they come from. Okunoshima is a small island in the Hiroshima Prefecture of Japan. Once home to chemical factories, it is now a resort with an unusual feature attraction: bunnies. Many, many bunnies.

Hoping the Easter Bunny is good to you this weekend!
