chicken: (04. Curse of the Were-Rabbit)
One rabbit or many? What do you believe? What do kids believe?

Does the Easter Bunny deliver all those eggs all by itself, in one time-space-continuum-defying night of herculean work, or is there a bevy of bunny helpers, a whole warren full of helpful little paws?

Similarly, is Santa also physics-defying, or does he just have lots of Elf helpers?

If the prevailing societal myth in both cases is actually the Lone Faster Than Light Rabbit/Santa, which of the two myths stays believable longer, for children? If one topples, does the other then automatically fall as well?

These are some thoughts I had today whilst hop-staggering down the hall to deliver only half a dozen small eggs. The bunny has some stamina! (I know I don't.)

Also, P.S., this is the perfect weekend (other than Halloween) for re-watching "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit". I'm just saying.
