You may actually be wondering what bunnies have to do with Easter and where the tradition of the Easter Bunny actually came from.
About the time of the 15th century before Christianity came to Europe, people of pagan Germany worshipped many gods and goddesses. One of the popular goddesses revered at this time was known as Eostra, who was considered to be the goddess of fertility and rebirth.
During this time period in history, in the springtime it was common to have a great feast and time of celebration in order to honor Eostra. During this celebration eggs and springtime symbolized new life and rebirth. When Christianity was taught throughout Europe, many of the old pagan rituals were then incorporated into new Christian traditions. Easter Eggs then came to be a symbol of Jesus’ resurrection.

When German immigrants came to America and settled into Pennsylvania, they brought with them many of the traditions and folklore that had been passed along to them for many generations, the Easter Bunny legend being one of these.
