Wanna know more about Easter and the bunny connection?  Then check this out:

Like many christian holidays, some of Easter’s more interesting customs have purported roots in the ancient religions, including connections to early Germanic paganism and Babylonian polytheism via the goddesses Eostre and Ishtar respectively.   The original Northern European holiday venerating Eostre (pronounced like “Easter”) is even still celebrated in modern form by some neo-pagan and Wiccan groups, under the name Ostara.   As suspected, there are connections to both rabbits and eggs through both of the aforementioned historical veins, so it’s no surprise that the Easter Bunny has continued to be a popular figure even into modern times.  Although speculation over the connection of the goddess Eostre to the Norse Freya rages on, hares have been connected to both theological figures, and also to the Greek and Roman goddesses, including Aphrodite.  Furthermore, rabbits have been thought of as sacred animals by many civilizations over the years, particularly in the UK and Scandinavia.  Remember English author Lewis C. Carroll’s white rabbit from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?”  In the story, the only character that’s given the ability to move freely at will between the magical wonderland and the real world, is the rabbit.
