Easter Legend Long, long ago there lived an old, woman who loved children very much. Each year she gave children presents to celebrate spring.
Easter Legend One year she had nothing to give because the harvest was very poor. All she had were some eggs.
Easter Legend She did not want to disappoint the children. So quickly before they came for their presents she coloured the eggs and hid them in the grass.
Easter Legend When the children came she said to them: "Run out into the lawn and find your presents hiding there”
Easter Legend The children began to look for the presents. At last they found a basket of coloured eggs under the bush. Suddenly a hare jumped out from under the bush. And the children decided that it was he, who had brought them the presents.
