Anyone know how carrots came to be associated with spring and Easter? The primary reason just seems to be by association with rabbits. Rabbits have been associated with spring since ancient times. The Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring was the hare since it was associated with fertility and the rebirth of nature after the dreary days of winter. Early Christians adopted the rabbit as a symbol since Easter coincided with the beginning of spring. In some places, children are encouraged to leave out carrots as treats for the Easter bunny.
