We all know where Santa lives; at the NorthPole of course.
But who knows where the Easter Bunny lives?
Wikipedia states that the Easter Bunny or Easter Rabbit (aka Spring Bunny) “is a character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs who sometimes is depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Father Christmas, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holiday
There is no mention of where the Easter Bunny lives, however, some believe that the Easter Bunny lives in a very deep hole in the ground somewhere on Easter Island? Or possibly in April Valley, Spring Valley or Egg Land. (like Eggland’s Best?)
If any of you know or have a good hunch, please let us know where the Easter Bunny lives.
TRACK THE EASTER BUNNY
NORAD tracks Santa but can not track the Easter Bunny because the Easter Bunny does not fly. He just hops around the world, right? Once again, like last year, there is the iPhone 3D Easter Bunny Tracker app. This year you can track the Easter Bunny with The Bunny Tracker. You could also try the First Annual 2012 Easter Bunny Tracking from the MidMoWeatherCam.
