Why Do Bunnies Have Hoppy Birthdays?

I was sitting very quietly in the garden - observing the wonderful nature sanctuary my lack of gardening skills have created - when I heard a little voice ...

"Hello there little bunny what do you want?"

"Well I fear I am a little lost. I am looking for Matthew's 1st birthday party ... I have a special jumper on just for him AND I made him a birthday card with my own little bunny paws."

"Well I've heard that Matthew's birthday party is actually England - which means you still have a very long way to go - but it was very sweet of you to make him a handmade card."

"Thank you - I drew a picture of my favorite thing on the front - a big juicy orange carrot."

"Shouldn't the card say 'Happy Birthday' instead of 'Hoppy Birthday?'"

"Oh no ... we bunnies are very happy creatures so we always like to give Hoppy Birthday wishes instead! Bunnies just love to hop you see, especially on exciting days like birthdays."

So I hope here today I have shed yet more light on the secret lives of bunnies!

Poor Matthew, not being able to have his card, perhaps I can help being in England myself? I have a little bunny, martha, that would love to help out!

Your post title reminded me of the favourite bunny joke in our household. At the risk of offending you & having you strike me off your blog list forever, here it is:

What do you get if you pour boiling water down a rabbit hole?

Sorry Rachael, I beg your forgiveness! Couldn't help myself.

This also goes to prove that bunnies are very creative creatures and know that a homemade gift from the heart is always the best!
