The rolling of the egg signifies when Jesus rolled the stone in front of his tomb away.

the eggs and bunnies represent the goddess Ishtar, who is a "pagan" goddess of fertility(also war, love, and sex). Easter was originally a festival held in her honor which coincided the change of the seasons from winter to spring, which held themes of fertility. the goddess's name ,Ishtar, is also where the word Easter comes from.

in reality, Easter is far from the Christian holiday that most people think it is.

actually the original jewish passover which is called "pesach" in hebrew is far from both and we eat eggs for completely different reasons that a very few know, don't bother to look on wiki you wont find it there

Beitzah - A roasted hardboiled egg to remind us of the Chagigah (Festival offering) that was brought in addition to the Pesach offering, on the afternoon before Pesach.and its meat was also roasted and eaten at the Seder Meal.
Eating an egg is the classic sign of mourning. It is the first meal that a mourner eats after a funeral. At the Seder the egg reminds us that, although we are celebrating our freedom, we still mourn the loss of our Beit HaMikdash and our consequent inability to offer the Korban Pesach (Paschal sacrifice). This is especially significant in light of the fact that the first Seder night always falls out on the same night of the week as Tisha B’Av (9th of Av) – the day of destruction of our Beit HaMikdash. It is also an exhibition of mourning for Avraham Avinu who passed away erev Pesach.
Furthermore, according to the Chasam Sofer, eating an egg is a reminder that the more the Egyptians "cooked" us, the stronger we became. The egg is an anomaly. Most foods become softer the longer they are cooked. The egg, on the other hand, becomes harder. So the Jewish people, the more they oppress us, the stronger we become. The egg also represents birth. Thus, we eat an egg on Pesach to recall that it is the night of the birth of the Jewish people.
