The best pictures of creepy Easter Bunnies scaring of innocent children~

Easter is a bizarre holiday with pagan origins and lot of bizzarre traditions in Europe, but not only. The dead returning to life. Bunny shaped chocolates. Painting and hiding eggs.

But did you know that the hare that later became the Easter Bunny came to be associated with churches because many believed it was a…

Freaks: the “Monsters” of the Barnum and Bailey Circus of the early 1900s

Before the cinema, television, YouTube, Netflix and similar, the circus was one of the most popular entertainment among people from all walks of life. Those who think that animals forced to perform against their nature suffer an unacceptable form of violence, would probably be horrified by the custom, very popular from 1800 until the first half of 1900, to showcase the so-called freaks.
