Easter 2006

In Czech tradition the lamb and the chick are symbols of Easter. Which further animal is traditionally associated with Easter?

a) the puppy
b) the baby goat
c) the hare
(While in the English-speaking world we have the Easter Bunny, in Czech tradition the bunny is actually the rabbit's larger relative, the hare. Like the rabbit, it is an ancient fertility symbol, as it breeds several times a year. They also live close to human habitation, which is why they are traditionally said to bring the Easter eggs.)
