When did eggs become a bunny thing? I wanted a carrot!

(Do not throw eggs at real dogs, Ichabod is a trained comedic professional. He may also be impervious to physical harm but we have not confirmed this yet. We may need to test this further.)

Also yes, this is a How to Basic reference. (For those of you who are taking the last panel too seriously.)

I'm so glad this comic is active again, after I found it on Imgur I was a bit sad seeing how there were only a few out and the last one was quite old. Thanks for the amazing work that's cheered me and others up!

I never intended to stop the comic.

A lot of things happened but I don't like to post those types of things on the Ichabod page because it would be such a downer.

Well, good thing Ichabod is resistant, or else he would be egg-in-eye-zing!

What are the names of the other characters?
Ayla StarDragon 9th Apr 2015, 1:34 AM edit delete reply
The kitty is Barnaby and the brown dog is still finding a suitable name. We were calling him kibbles n bites as a joke XD

A lot of people think the cat is a female but he's also a boy lol

Suggestion: The brown dog's name should be Cinnamon. Because "spicy" is a flavor I would use to describe his attitude, and also because it's a cute-sounding name for the dog that stands out by not being as cute as the other animals. Ever heard of Fluffy the Terrible?

The name Easter comes from Eostre, an Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility. In the second century A.D., Christian missionaries who were trying to convert the tribes of northern Europe noticed that their Christian holiday which commemorated the resurrection of Christ roughly coincided with the pagan springtime celebrations which focused on the triumph of life over death. Over time, the Christian Easter absorbed traditional non-Christian symbols.

In Medieval Europe, eggs were prohibited during Lent and eggs laid during that time were often boiled to preserve them. Eggs were therefore a major component of Easter meals and a prized holiday gift for children and servants.

Throughout the ages, eggs have also been viewed as symbols of new life and fertility and many ancient cultures (including the Egyptians, Persians, and Romans) used eggs during their spring festivals.

Coloring eggs is an established art and they were used in various holiday games; parents would hide for children to find, and children would roll eggs down hills. These practices live on today in Easter and egg rolls.

Like eggs, rabbits have long been symbols of fertility and, in fact, were the symbol of Eostre. The concept of an “Easter Hare” comes from Germany, where tales were told of a white "Easter hare" who laid eggs for children to find. German immigrants to America brought the tradition with them and spread it to a wider public. They also baked cakes for Easter in the shape of hares and may have originated the practice of making chocolate bunnies and eggs.

As for the Easter basket, in the past it was customary to bring baskets filled with early seedlings to Eostre to increase the chances of having a good harvest. Likewise, this goddess would carry around a basket of eggs. And the good Germans who brought us the Easter Hare believed that the rabbit would bring baskets full of goodies for children on Easter morning.

Lastly, after being baptized, early Christians wore white robes throughout Easter week to represent their new lives. Those had already been baptized wore new clothes instead to symbolize their sharing a new life with Christ. In Medieval Europe, churchgoers often took a stroll after Easter Mass, led by a crucifix or the Easter candle. Today these walks continue as Easter Parades. People show off their spring finery, including bonnets decorated for spring.

The first line is actually Ichabod talking because I usually write the text from his perspective.

Sorry for the confusion, I just got like several of these posts from people already XD

someone should start a subbreddit for Ichabod. All of your original comics would be there and the also have some by fans. It would be nice (idk about your opinion) to see some fan art posted there and also have the fanbase grow.

the link would be /r/ITOC

I've created one, but going to edit the colors/banner etc later.

The reddit has been completed :)

Re-learning CSS coding stuff was fun. XD
