In our ongoing effort to map mythical holiday creatures, we decided to compare references to the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. The bottom line: the bunny is a bust! Does this vast disparity in references to the mythical creatures associated with Christian holidays have something to say about which is most important? Is it just that people like the gifts that Santa brings them and are spiting the Easter Bunny for not dishing out the gifts?
Still, it does seem that the Easter Bunny is giving Santa a run for his money in Britain with the coasts forming a thin out layer of rabbit territory with a Santa-filled center. Mmmmm...time to go pick up some Cadbury eggs.
