Which animal brings Easter eggs to children in Switzerland?
Like the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, Easter arrives at the beginning of Spring in Switzerland. Easter and Spring are wrapped up together, but that country’s symbol of growth and rebirth isn’t the bunny—it’s the cuckoo bird. (It makes more sense for eggs to come from birds than bunnies, right?) Swiss children fill their baskets on Easter morning by hunting for colored eggs and chocolate eggs left by the Easter Cuckoo. Cuckoos are much more prevalent in Switzerland anyhow—it’s the birthplace of the cuckoo clock, after all.
Answer: The correct answer is Cuckoo.
