oh, hey, this isn’t actually true. Ishtar has no such egg or bunny symbols, Easter has nothing to do with Ishtar.
Easter supposedly takes it name from Eostre, a Germanic pagan goddess. There is a story about how during a harsh winter a bird trapped in a tree had become frozen. When the spring came (or rather, when Eostre brought it) Eostre saw said bird on ice and pitied it, transforming it into a rabbit. However it continued to lay eggs.
The most likely link to the original pagan(?) Easter and the current commercial christian appropriation is probably the name Eostre having the meaning of “dawn,” that fits fantastically flush with risen Son sensibilities?
