  9. Which country in ancient times had a funeral for a herring? People from this country would not buy meat during Lent and instead subsisted on herring, cheap and plentiful source of protein. It is said that it was the butchers suffering from lack of business who started the tradition of a funeral procession for the herring. As people were sick and tired of the fish by then it was a popular parade on Easter Saturday.
  10. Finally, you’ve heard of great Easter egg hunts? What about the great Easter Bunny Hunt? Last year 8,500 rabbits were shot in a town in this country. In past years as many as 20,000 were killed. Rabbits have multiplied into plague proportions in this country and threaten crops.
