Easter Bunny - See No Evil

Although I have a wide variety of Easter cards, I have a number of them that have a nearly identical Easter Bunny. In a few cases, girls are covering the rabbit's eyes. I don't know why.


  1. The top one is very interesting (although they are all very nice). It's almost as if St. Patrick's Day (girl) is hiding Easter.

  2. Those are beautiful cards. I especially like the first one.

  3. How amazing the bunny postcards. The little girl is playing peek a boo.

  4. Amazing cards. How strange the girl is covering the rabbit's eyes!

  5. These kindle vivid memories. The images convey such positive, warm feelings.

  6. The girls appear to be hiding the rabbits' demonic red eyes. Are they Easter bunnies...or zombie rabbits?

  7. Card 1- creepy girl
    Card 2- cute girl
    Card 3- drunk, emaciated rabbit
    Card 4- pit bull rabbit
    Card 5- May Day Satan rabbit
    I think you pretty much covered the bases...

  8. Possible reason behind the covering of the eyes. It could derive from the introduction of the Easter Bunny to America. In the 1700s in Pennsylvania, German settler folklore introduced "Oschter Haws".... "Oschter Haws" was a hare that would lay colored eggs in the nest(the children built nests out of their hats or bonnets) for good boys and girls. Children believed only if they were good that they would be rewarded with a visit from "Oschter Haws". The girls covering the eyes of the bunny may derive from children not wanting the easter bunny to see if they were bad....

  9. All your Easter postcards are delightful. The rabbit having his eyes covered is intriguing. The reason is probably lost in the mists of time.
