Easter - Sunday Stamps II

I looked for an Easter bunny but found this stamp from 1997 instead.


Great Britain
In 2009 my article in the magazine Ireland's Own entitled 'Mad as a March Hare' include a paragraph which read -

"Our name for Easter may be derived from a goddess associated with spring called Eastre. The date of Easter is tied to the moon, and the hare has strong lunar associations, with hare hunting being a common activity in England." 

Now that's probably illegal.

However I have discovered a rabbit on a set of pet stamps from the USA.

It may be Easter but I'm spending my time decorating. For those wanting to see more Easter of favourite stamps just check out the links at Sunday-stamps-ii-122.html

A very handsome hare, and I'd forgotten about the pet bunny stamp.

For some reason I like the juxtaposition of the words forever pets. Good luck with the decorating.
