The "resurrection of Christ" never happened and "Jesus" never existed.
Easter is an ancient pagan festival to celebrate the vernal equinox (end of winter, nature turning green again etc.), and bunnies and eggs are symbols of fertility.
Easter has been hijacked by christianity the way yule and thanksgiving have been hijacked by that idiot religion. However, the christians weren't able to completely extinguish the pagan symbolism.

Yep, happy easter!

I don't even know if any of that's correct, but I'm digging it as a non-christian..

lets not forget the tradition behind LENT now.
this was a thing followed by almost all christians, the 6 weeks leading up to easter,

Lent "According to the apostolic constitution of Pope Paul VI (1966), "the law of abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs, the products of milk or condiments made of animal fat.
Growing up, I don't remember at all, that we weren't allowed to eat eggs.

At the time easter began to be celebrated, the major religion in the areas were pagan. the ressurrection occured close to the date of the pagan holiday in which they worshipped the pagan god of fertility Ishtar. (also known as easter) eggs and rabbits represent fertility, and that is why they are used. personally i call easter ressurection day. it seems more appropriet in my opinion.

> personally i call easter
Me and a few mates had an easter we called resurrection day once.
