Easter Bunny, events renamed ‘spring’ to avoid offending anyone

Boynton Beach, they are still bucking a national trend that is reducing the   Easter Bunny to a “Spring Bunny” and Easter eggs to “spring   spheres.”

The city’s senior center is hosting an Easter show and an Easter bonnet   contest on Thursday . The senior center is expecting about 120 people for   its popular festivities.

But by next year, even that might be gone.

“We’ll probably be changing soon,” said Ann Foster, a recreation   specialist at the Boynton Beach Senior Center. “I’ve heard there is a   lot of controversy. Now people say, ‘holiday party’ and ‘holiday show.’ I   don’t know where we’re going with all this.”

The quiet de-Easterization of the bunny seems to have surfaced about six years   ago, in shopping malls and some cities. The Boca Raton Town Center mall   sponsors a “Bunny Bash Extravaganza” and the “Spring Bunny”   has been visiting the Gardens Mall for years.
