    Procreation, just like the rebirth of Jebus.....I think. Makes sense of course!

    Hares, rabbits: These are symbols of fertility “handed down from the ancient ceremonial and symbolism of European and Middle Eastern pagan spring festivals.”​—Encyclopædia Britannica.

    Eggs: According to Funk & Wagnalls Standard Dictionary of Folklore, Mythology and Legend, the hunt for Easter eggs, supposedly brought by the Easter rabbit, “is not mere child’s play, but the vestige of a fertility rite.” Some cultures believed that the decorated Easter egg “could magically bring happiness, prosperity, health, and protection.”—Traditional Festivals.

    Absolutely nothing! Far more important than that, What does God's Word the Bible say about Easter based on where it originated from? Easter (Different topics to choose from) Jw.org Library. Matthew 24:10 'many will be stumbled and will betray one another'. For more info on what God's Word the Bible really says, go on our website via Stephen Russ Jr's homepage on Facebook.

    The same thing that candy canes and reindeer have to do with Christmas.

    Paganism, old traditions.

    Rabbits reproduce and are cute. Eggs is the hatching of new life in spring.

    Read the Bible. Once you've accepted Jesus into your heart, you'll understand.

    Listening to the Bible on 8-track is also acceptable.
