Recognisable secular symbols of easter include:
Bunnies: Rabbits are known as the most fertile of animals, so they symbolise abundance. Bunnies represent new life in the spring season
Eggs: An egg represents fertility and potential and is the universal emblem of life. Eggs were traditionally painted in bright colours to reflect the sunlight in spring.
Chicks: Chicks are also a symbol of new young life.
