Many years ago, I raised rabbits. They are an interesting and cute creature. It’s not uncommon for us to find a nest of them near our home in the spring / early summer. So, how did the rabbit become part of the Easter tradition? From Wikipedia: 

Originating among German Lutherans, the "Easter Hare" originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behavior at the start of the season of Eastertide.” (wikipedia

The folklore and symbols ... Christmas? Interesting.
