MIDWAY, FL - Today on Second Cup, we asked the question: Have you ever wondered the origin of the Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs? Why are they associated with the holiday?

Here's a little history, the legend of the Easter Bunny bringing eggs appears to have been brought to America by settlers from Germany.

The Easter Hare brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes toys to the homes of children and will hide the eggs somewhere in the house or garden.

Easter Sunday is upon us, and leading up to the holiday, parents often have their children take pictures with the Easter Bunny.

We look at some of the most awkward, funny and even a little scary "Mall Bunny Pictures."
