Bunnies, no. Bilbies, yes!

We’ve all heard about the Easter bunny but have you ever heard of an Easter bilby? Easter what, you say?

Well, rabbits are considered a pests here in Australia and ever since there has been a campaign in the past to replace Easter bunnies with bilbies. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of chocolate bilbies goes to a fund to save this endangered marsupial.

If you ask me, those bilbies look oddly like a cross between a mouse and a bunny. And with that piece of Easter trivia, I greet each and everyone of you a Happy Easter!
