Tales From the East Pole (contd.)©R. Newman 2001
Rabbits and Eggs (what's the connection?)Everyone knows that rabbits don't really lay eggs. So what's the connection?
But through my discussion with my sources and trying to fill in the gaps, I've developed a theory. Mind you, these clever bunnies used plants, roots, and vegetables to dye and color their eggs, much as we do now.
Until original eggs are found, there's probably no way to prove or disprove this. Their system involved starting with primary colors red, yellow and blue.
A purple egg (red on blue OR blue on red) might have indicated a new trail that they were forced to try in spite of the lurking dangers. In all probability it was a trail best avoided.
And a green egg (blue on yellow or vice versa) would simply mean a new trail that held great promise.
Well, as I mentioned before, once the comings and goings of ships became quite common, there was little reason to warn one another, so the meanings started to get lost. But as it turned out, the East Pole is probably one of the most beautiful spots on earth to watch the sun rise. After all, no where else does it rise any earlier. And what better time of year than at the time when day and night were nearly equal than to celebrate the discovery of the East Pole, by coloring eggs and leaving them to help other bunnies make their pilgimage.
If you find eggs that are spotted or have other markings, there's a good chance that these are actually decoy eggs. Left to confuse humans so that they'll miss the existence of the East Pole.
