While the exact Pagan holiday for its being remains in question, most today think of it as a Christian holiday celebrating Jesus' resurrection. However, the bunny and the eggs represent fertility, and the celebration of Spring represents rebirth of the seasons. And if anyone knows Pagans, they were all about fertility and seasons! Especially when those beliefs were accredited to a goddess, one who was typically celebrated in a tradition predating Christ.

Easter is not a pagan holiday. It's a Christian holiday which coincides with pagan celebrations of spring, fertility, etc. The early Christians were not stupid. They put their festivities on dates when people already celebrated and built the first churches where people had always gathered to celebrate pagan gods.

It might as well be a pagan holiday, same with Halloween and Christmas. :P The usurpers were smart by putting their rules in place of what others had done before they existed. :D
