Jesus and a Bunny Rabbit - Why are they both part of the Easter Tradition?

Jesus and the Easter Bunny are not directly tied together, as the Easter Bunny is a secular symbol, not part of the Christian tradition.

In our Christian tradition, Easter represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who sacrificed himself for the sins of humanity and brought the message of love, forgiveness, and peace. Jesus' message of peace inspires millions worldwide, encouraging us to treat others with kindness, compassion, and respect and to work towards building a more just and equitable society.

Regardless of its origins, the Easter Bunny has become a famous symbol of Easter in many parts of the world and is often associated with springtime, renewal, and new beginnings. While the Easter Bunny is not directly related to the religious significance of Easter, it has become a cherished part of many Easter traditions and celebrations as it reminds us of the importance of renewing our commitment to creating a more peaceful and harmonious world.

However, both symbols are associated with Easter, a time of reflection and renewal, and the message of peace is central to both.
