These Easter movies on HBO Max are secular – focusing on the Easter bunny and cute rabbits.
Customs that have become associated with Easter and are observed by both Christians and some non-Christians include egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades.
The oldest tradition is to use dyed eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute decorated chocolate, or plastic eggs filled with candy such as jellybeans.
In some traditions the children put out their empty baskets for the Easter bunny to fill while they sleep. They wake to find their baskets filled with candy eggs and other treats.
A custom originating in Germany, the Easter Bunny is a popular legendary anthropomorphic Easter gift-giving character analogous to Santa Claus in American culture. Many children around the world follow the tradition of coloring hard-boiled eggs and giving baskets of candy.
