Where did bunnies come from, and what do they have to do with Easter? The rabbit is a pagan symbol of fertility and a sexual symbol. We all know that rabbits reproduce quickly which is why pagans use this as their fertility symbol. Here’s a quote from a pagan/wiccan website where they state it themselves, “Spring equinox, or Ostara, is a time for fertility and sowing seeds, and so nature’s fertility goes a little crazy. The rabbit — for good reason — is often associated with fertility magic and sexual energy.” This again is why they had their sexual orgy rituals in the groves.
