The Easter Bunny originates from Germanic folklore whereby a rabbit fills baskets left out by children with chocolate, other treats and gifts. Sometimes the rabbit even hides these treasures for the children to find.

To dream about the Easter bunny suggests that someone is hiding something from you. 

Depending on how difficult the eggs were to locate- this person may be reluctant for you to find something out about them. Most likely this is because they are ashamed or embarrassed to admit it to someone they care about. 

However if the treats were easy to come across, maybe this person isn’t too precious about you learning this piece of information about them. 

Consider who else was with you in the dream for additional meaning. 

If the Easter Bunny filled your basket to the point of it overflowing- someone might be spoiling you in your waking hours. While this may feel good, the dream might be telling you not to get too accustomed to this level of treatment. 

If you do, you may come to expect it and when you get less, which you inevitably will, you will feel disappointed. 

Take it for what it is- a one off- an exception and you will appreciate it more.

On the other hand, if the Easter Bunny filled someone else’s basket but gave you a single egg or perhaps didn’t offer you anything at all, you may feel that you are being treated differently to those around you either at work or in your personal life. Others are getting more than you think they deserve while you get nothing or the scraps they leave behind. What can you do to redress this imbalance? 

If your basket was full and someone else didn’t get any or very few eggs, do you need to share what you have with others more? 

Maybe you are too quick to use all of your resources on yourself but don’t think about those around you in greater need. 

If you were dressed up as the Easter Bunny and were giving out treats to children, perhaps you are someone who enjoys being generous with what you have. 

Alternatively, do you need to be more careful about what you give away? Maybe you are leaving yourself short because you are prioritising others above your own needs. 

Another interpretation of dressing up as the Easter Bunny or any character for that matter is that you are trying to fool others into thinking you are someone you’re not. Perhaps you want people to believe you are kind and generous but deep down, these traits don’t come naturally to you. Do you want someone close to you to believe that you are good with children or enjoy their company when in fact you don’t? 

Perhaps a partner is pushing to have a baby with you when you know in your heart of hearts that you don’t want offspring. 

On the flipside, if you recognised the person beneath the Easter bunny costume, maybe they are concealing some aspect of their personality from you and it’s in your interest to find out what it is that they are keeping locked up.
