Easter Bilby

As An alternative to Easter Bunnies you will see Easter Bilbies in Australia. I have however not seen any yet and it does not seem like the Australians are celebrating Easter that much, at least not in the same way as we do in the Nordics. Only thing that has reminded me that it’s Easter is that the supermarket closed earlier yesterday as it was Good Friday.

Bilbies are native Australian marsupials that are endangered. To raise money and increase awareness of conservation efforts, bilby-shaped chocolates and related merchandise are sold within many stores throughout Australia as an alternative to Easterbunnies.
