Why is bunny related to Easter?
The story of the Easter Bunny is thought to have become common in the 19th Century. Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter of babies (called kittens), and because of their high fertility, they became a symbol of new life. The beautiful white lie is that bunnies lay eggs for the children on Easter. However, real rabbits don't lay eggs. A bunny as placental mammals, they develop embryos inside a uterus like humans and, after a pregnancy lasting about 31 to 33 days, give birth to a litter of bunnies.
Rabbits were brought from Europe to Australia in the 1800s. Experts stated European rabbits' introduction to Australia was one of the fastest spreading instances of an invasive mammal.
They can birth more than four litters a year with as many as five kits (baby rabbits) each.
Those rabbits are extremely adaptive, which has played a role in their spread across the Australian continent. The soil in Australia is quite suitable for them to dig warrens and they rely the food on short grasses. Since these conditions are fairly easy to come by, they can adapt to new habitats such as the deserts and plains of Australia easily. Not only are European rabbits adaptable creatures, they are also known for rapidly producing large quantities of offspring. They can reproduce at a young age, and they can reproduce all year round. European rabbits, or hares, can produce more than four litters each year, with two to five kits (baby rabbits) per litter on average.

Answers from Quora
“In fact, this is the question I’m used to asking myself many times a day - each time I look at Spike, my beautiful rabbit! I really wonder because it is not just about their cute faces andcute body shape. Everything about them is cute and this is no exaggeration at all. Nothing and no one is able to make me laugh and fill my heart with overwhelming joy and happiness and love as much as this dear creature. The way he eats his beloved clovers without using his small hands and just by chewing them, the way he stands up on his hind feet with erect ears all of a sudden after hearing a distant sound which I would never hear, the way he licks me all over with his warm little tongue to show his sincere love with such pure innocence and compassion, the way he peacefully lays on my lap and gradually goes to sleep right there while my eyes just get wet looking at his closed eyes which are now more like two little cute lines on his calm beautiful face which I dearly love.
And about his little adorable mouth, his cute little tongue and front teeth, etc. oh I can not even start to describe them!
I haven’t still found the answer to that persisting question, so I just keep on adoring him with all my heart which is in fact really easy to do.”
“Rabbits are cute because they have really soft fur and cute round big eyes.
They are cute because they are small and cuddly. They remind most people of a soft toy.
Rabbits are cute because they have soft velvet ears and a little nose that is always twitching.
But most importantly they all have different personalities, some are really sociable and love to be petted while others are grumpy and don’t like to be touched. They can like some humans more than other and they have different reactions to different people.
When I see my rabbit he gets really excited and starts running around in circles, and when I pet him he sits really still and puts his head down.”
