Eastra, the goddess of spring, is where the name for Easter originated. She represented fertility and renewal, and was often depicted with the hare, another symbol of fertility. But the holiday, as it exists today, is really about a very different historical event: the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I have often found that people who don't believe in God or Christianity haven't even dealt with the historical figure of Jesus at all, as if he didn't exist. I, for one, wouldn't be very confident in my spiritual beliefs if they ignored the most well known historical figure of all time who claimed to be God's very son. I'm not a shrink, but I think that qualifies as denial.
