The modern day depiction of Easter now features a celebration of sweet treats, candy-covered eggs, and cute fuzzy rabbits. In the 1950s, when pin-up photography was at its height, there were many Easter-themed photos featuring curvy women emerging from giant eggs, holding bunnies, or wearing rabbit ears. Perhaps this is what gave inspiration to Hugh Hefner to think up his playboy bunnies.
