Fact of the Day
Easter eggs actually have meaning within the Christian church. Eggs symbolize life and more specifically, in the Christian tradition, new life. The egg has been a sign of life for ages. The symbol was eventually adopted by the church and soon after as a representation of Easter; the supposed resurrection of Jesus is now associated with the egg.
As far as the Easter bunny is concerned with Christianity, it also stands for life. Appropriately, the bunny is a sign of fertility and it's basket can be related to stork-like folklore. Bunnies copulate in the spring during the vernal equinox (which also happens to be the supposed best time to balance an egg on its tip). In all, an egg-basket wielding bunny is oddly appropriate for divine resurrection.
