Although some think that the Easter bunny was known about during the pre-Roman era, it is most likely that the connection between the Easter bunny and eggs was discovered by the Grimm Brothers in the 1800s.

Bunnies, or hares actually, pull the chariot of the German goddess of spring and fertility, Eostre, [or possibly Ostara]. And some think that she turned an egg-laying swallow into a hare, and that is why we have brightly colored Easter eggs in the spring.

The practice of making Easter eggs, and giving them to children in North America, is thought to have originated with the Pennsylvania Dutch.
