Here at Conejo Valley Guide we have a special place in our heart for Easter fun! The bunnies of the Conejo Valley and surrounding Ventura County areas are planning ahead to make this Easter memorable.
We have the Germans to thank for the Easter Bunny concept, which came about in the 1500s. Hares and bunnies are signs of fertility and eggs signify rebirth. The Germans brought Easter traditions to America and it wasn't until after the Civil War that Easter became widely celebrated. Now we celebrate by gorging ourselves on candy!
Easter Sunday 2013 is was March 31st, 9 days earlier than Easter 2012 and 16 days earlier than Easter 2011. Easter Sunday is the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern hemisphere's vernal equinox. As a result, Easter Sunday ranges from March 22nd to April 25th. So complicated! Easter next year is April 20, 2014 for you advance planners.
We will be updating the list of upcoming eggstravagant Easter events in and around Ventura County towards early 2014. See ya back here then!
