Once upon a time there was a family of rabbits, the father, the mother and the 3 children, who lived in a small burrow in the middle of the forest.
Easter was approaching and no one knew who the Easter bunny would be bringing the chocolate eggs to the children. So Mommy and Daddy Rabbits got down to business.
The mother took a basket and put 3 eggs in it, one very large, one medium and one small. He called his 3 children and said:
- In that basket we have 3 Easter eggs. Each one of you take an egg and take it to the garden of the house where children live.
The rabbits were very happy. They lined up, from oldest to youngest, and began to follow the mother's instructions.
The eldest of the sons took the largest egg, and ran through the forest. He crossed the river, the meadow, but he was going so fast that he ended up tripping on a stone and fell to the ground. The egg he was holding broke and he was unable to bring it to the children.
So THAT WAS NOT THE EASTER RABBIT.
The second rabbit chose the medium egg, the most striking red. He crossed the river, then the meadow, and as he hurried to the children's house, he tried to jump over the fence, jumped too big and fell. And with him, the egg broke.
So THAT WAS NOT THE EASTER RABBIT.
The third rabbit, the youngest in the family, had no choice. She took the only egg left in the basket, the smallest. Enjoying the collected and unhurried, the little rabbit crossed the river, then the meadow and finally reached the garden of the children's house. The door was closed. So he put the egg in the basket that the children had put at the entrance of the house.
So THIS WAS THE REAL EASTER RABBIT.
