It has been a long-standing tradition in our family to make Easter nests out of the clothing we wore for the day and leave them in a general area of the house, like the living room. These are then filled by the "Easter bunny". Originally, we recieved candy treats as well as new clothing, usually our swim suit for the coming warm days. Does anyone else celebrate like this? Any idea where it originated? Some family names: . Origins in Ireland, Prussia, possibly Holland. Native American roots and possibly Jewish ties. Any connections would be appreciated.
