Easter Bunny tracker 2011: Where is he now?

Easter Bunny tracker 2011: Where is he now?
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Rabbits, with their skill at multiplication, long ago became an ancient symbol of fertility and new life. And the bunny has become a prominent symbol of the holiday of Easter.

According to history.com, some sources say the Easter bunny was first introduced to America in the 1700s when German immigrants settled in Pennsylvania and brought their tradition of a rabbit they called "Osterhase" or "Oschter Haws," which apparently laid eggs. Colored ones.

Where the chocolate candy and baskets came from, we don’t know. But the children love the Easter bunny, and now they can keep track of his progress in delivering eggs all around the world.

The most popular Easter bunny tracker has been introduced as an iphone application. It is available for $1.99.

According to itunes, the user receives new blogs every day with graphics and audio as the characters present a tale of friendship, pride and forgiveness. The app also has an interactive globe and radar map to aid in finding the bunny’s current location, and how long it will take before he arrives in your area. If that isn’t enough, you can also text message the Easter bunny.
