Easter Jigsaw puzzles

Hi! With Easter nearly upon us we thought we would find some of the more unusual puzzles out there for you to try.

Easter BunnyEaster is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the 3rd day after his crucifixion. Today we give chocolate eggs to the children, but many years ago the eggs were highly painted in bright colours to give them further meaning as a gift. They were mainly hard-boiled chicken eggs rather than chocolate.

Early Anglo-Saxon legend states that the Saxon goddess Eostre found a wounded bird and transformed her into a hare or rabbit and the rabbit could lay eggs. It decorated the eggs each spring as offerings to the goddess Eostre, hence the rabbit and eggs that we see on the shelves in shops today.

Below is a man called John Wittneben dedicated to the hobby of dissectology (or Jigsaw puzzling to you and me!). He is fanatical about Jigsaws.
