What does a Easter bunny hiding eggs have to do with Easter?

Just curious... :)

It's part of the pagan spring fertility rites, for people praying to their gods for children, and that their farm land and farm animals will also be fertile so they will have enough food. The pagan refused to give them up, so they got integrated into the Christian spring thing.

Pagan is a term not a religion

There are pagan religions; they tend to have nature-oriented gods. Me, I like them.

The same thing love and flowers have to do with Valentine's day...nothing.Eggs actually signify rebirth and new hope so as Spring approaches and the flowers bloom......

not much . but the bunny and the eggs are from the original holiday (i guess you could call it that) celebrating new life around spring time (newborn animals ) the eggs and bunnies come from that .

it derives from the pagan story of the fertility goddess starting spring and coming across a bunny that lays chocolate eggs. its a cute story about spring and the origin of Easter.
