Where did the Easter Bunny come from?

The easter Bunny was a symbol of fertility this really has nothing to do with the Christian holiday It originally symbolized the Goddess Astaroth. "Easter" was stolen from the goddess Astaroth by the church with the intent of converting pagans. It was originally Originally known as "Ashtar." This holiday coincides with the Vernal Equinox of spring when day and night are of equal length. Known as "Eastre" to the Anglo-Saxons. As the Goddess of fertility, she was associated with rabbits and eggs. The Christians stole this holiday and twisted its meaning. Other names include: Easter, Eastre, Eos, Eostre, Ester, Estrus, (Estrus is when an animal goes into heat; mating season) Oestrus, Oistros, and Ostara. The "Lamb of God" (refereed to as Jesus on this holiday) was stolen from the Zodiac sign of Aries the Ram which occurs every spring.
