Ostara was a mother goddess of Northern Europe who was honored as the bringer of the dawn and of the springtime. One of the myths of Ostara features the bunny.

As the story goes, Ostara, was late bringing spring one year. As her energy swooped across the land, she came upon a little bird whose wings had been frozen in the snow. Filled with compassion for him since he could no longer fly, she turned him into a snow hare and gave him the gift of incredible speed, to flee from the hunters. In remembrance of his earlier form as a bird, she gave him the ability to lay multi-colored eggs on one day of the year, the day of the Easter festival.
