Easter-2

In our Easter show, Mark said he always imagined the Easter Bunny being somewhat like a dragon, because both are known for guarding things that they acquired, but did not create. In the case of the Easter Bunny it's eggs, of course, and in the case of a dragon, it's treasure. Well listener Jane emailed us this photo, of one of the earliest known American depictions of the Easter Bunny. It looks like Mark was really on to something. Perhaps the Easter Bunny is even more closely related to a dragon than he realized. (Read more about this drawing here.) /dan
