Easter used to celebrate with roasted chicken or chocolate bunny. It has been followed by millions of Christian Britons. But it has been found that the chicken and hare used to worship them or raise them as family members thousand years ago.
A team of experts from the Universities of Exeter, Leicester and Oxford in the United Kingdom has found it through radiocarbon dating. There was no sign of brutal mark of the knife in these animals, which are long associated with Easter. People consider them next to God; they don’t consume them at all.
They’ve come to the food item list after the roman’s entered to Britain. Also, there is a passage from the book ‘De Bello Gallico’ written by Julius Caeser, 2,000 years ago that the Britons has a divine law to not consume the chicken, hare or goose. Only they are allowed to raise them for the amusement.
After 410 AD, the populations of hare, chicken, the goose has declined heavily and they are considered to have regained their special status, as they are turning to be a rare species among the region.
