The festive side of Easter actually has nothing to do with Christianity. In norse religions, the rabbit is revered as heralding the coming of spring (because they fuck like mad in spring, producing untold numbers of offspring). A festival is held each year called 'Eostre' - named after the Norse goddess of spring. The eggs are just a cheap cash-in which have been designed to be given during the religious holiday weekend.
