San Diego County parks have set four Easter egg hunts, but are keeping the affairs secular by renaming the featured hopper the Spring Bunny.
Events over the next two weeks will feature different activities at each location. Some feature face painting and others pancake breakfasts.
Eggs hunts are set at four county parks. Image courtesy of County News CenterBut the constants at all of them will be a chance to meet the Spring Bunny and lots of eggs thousands of them! says the county, whose news release doesnt use the word Easter.
Last years release also avoided any religious references.
Spring has sprung and all our parks are bursting with color, says County Parks Director Brian Albright. Dont miss out on this opportunity for a fun family outing.
A county spokeswoman said Spring Bunny is not a new term locally.
Why Spring Bunny?
Sign of the times, said Michael Workman, county communications director. Its the prudent course of action. Our goal has always been to include all in the communities we serve.

Wait till you see their “4th of July Hare” .
Funny they didn’t want to name the bunny after a pagan holiday...
It’s not like he was the “Resurrection Day Bunny”.
Just keep saying Easter bunnby, no matter what the low IQ gubmit dorks say.
If they object, give them the standard salute given by real people to the Obamadork...that’s the one-finger salute.
It’s far past time to shove this up their smelly Obamaholes.
Yup, that’s the Easter bunnby....to shove up......their....
That’s what I say. Screw ‘em.
So the county employees should have to work on Good Friday instead of taking that day off.
Typical lefty rollover response. The 'times' exist because weasels in government have acquiesced to liberal nonsense and/or actively encourage it.
And here's a tip: whenever some government pencil-pusher uses the word 'communities,' simply substitute 'communes.' It's more concise and far more accurate.
I’ll be convinced when I see how they handle Ramadan....Autumn Diet Month?
Of course not...we’ll get an official proclamation.
Don’t forget to buy your Eid and Kwanzaa stamps at the Post Office!
Easter bunnies don’t really have anything to do with Easter, so maybe this is a good thing. It’s almost the opposite of controversies in which a Christmas event is renamed a “Winter Holiday.” In the latter case, a religious holiday is being transformed into a secular holiday, whereas in this case they are disassociating a secular add-on from a religious celebration that it has nothing to do with in the first place.
It’s NEVER a good thing to placate Muslims.
I have no problem with this. It is not a Christian symbol. It has nothing to do with Easter.
I agree that Easter is a religous celebration - for some. Christians, Druids, Pagans and more. But just as Christmas also has strong secular traditions, so does Easter.
Leave the Easter Bunny alone.
“We will include everyone”. Except Christians, who are named that because of Christ, who lived, died, and rose again to defeat sin and death. Those people, who celebrate Easter as the ultimate redemption reminder, we will offend those people .
It is not a Christian symbol. It has nothing to do with Easter.
So? No one has ever said that Easter belongs exclusively to the Christians.
Leave the Easter Bunny alone.
And how many Muslims will be "included" in this oh-so inclusive, prudent farce?
Just stop going to these secular things. Have your own Easter celebration at home.
