The Easter Bunny/Santa Alliance

A Glimpse of the Easter Bunny
With Easter coming up, talk of the Easter Bunny has become a daily occurrence in my home. I overheard my son (6) and daughter (soon to be 5) discussing how it is possible for the Easter Bunny to deliver so many baskets full of goodies on a single night. After much debate, my panel of little theorists have decided that there can be only one explanation: Santa helps the Easter Bunny deliver Easter goodies every year!

When I asked them to explain exactly why they felt this was the truth they gave me the following arguments (with a little rewording and summarizing):

1.) The Easter Bunny is only a rabbit. Rabbits hop, and when you hop with an Easter basket things come flying out.

2.) Unlike Santa, who has a sleigh and reindeer, the Easter Bunny doesn’t have any type of vehicle. Plus, rabbits have paws, so how can they drive?

3.) And unlike Santa, again, the Easter Bunny doesn’t have a magic sack, so how does he carry all the toys and candy?

4.) A couple Easter’s ago we took a few quick photos of the Easter Bunny riding in a red convertible. Apparently, red = Santa Claus in their little minds.

So, what do you think? Is it possible for the Easter Bunny to do his deliveries solo? Or is he secretly getting behind-the-scenes help from old St. Nick every year? This could be the conspiracy theory of the century!


  1. Their reasoning is adorable! I totally agree Santa is involved with a little help from the Tooth Fairy :)

  2. I think they maybe on to something here! ;)

    Sounds like a good children's book about the time Santa had to help the Easter Bunny!

    I am trying to read all the A to Z blogs, but coming back to the ones I really like.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do all month.

  3. Wow, those are some smart, insightful kids! Let them know the Easter Bunny uses a magical backpack (Like they use for school.) which keeps the baskets nice and neat! LOL!

  4. So cute! Maybe they help each other. LOL

  5. The Easter bunny has always been an enigma to me, That was cute!

  6. Great story! I'll remember this in case my son asks when he gets older.

  7. Love this post and the fantasy world of children -- and some adults. How about the Easter bunny hiding baskets in the bushes? They're hidden this time of year because the plants are starting to bloom -- then all of the little bunnies help carry the baskets out of their hiding places (and also help to hide the eggs for Easter egg hunts).
