Easter is the merging of several spring celebrations.
The most well known is the Christian Easter.
Other religions have similar celebrations under different names.
Because of the dates being in spring and a history of
assimilation of other religions, Easter merged with
other traditional Spring Festivals.

Hence the bunnies and the eggs which are all
fertility symbols in several other religions.
