It clearly is. (The ritual depicted as well as hares, eggs, bonfires)
I just wanted to point out that Easter is not like Christmas. Christmas was invented to compete with pagan pagan holidays. Easter is genuine christian. Some people don't know that and make a fool of themselfs arguing that all christian holidays are stolen from the pagans.

Maybe not all. There are a lot of them.

The name is pagan, the timing is pagan, the customs are pagan, even the underlying theme (a fresh start, a new cycle) is the same as the pre-existing pagan celebrations...but Easter is genuinely Christian? That seems a bit of a stretch to me. Maybe it is a coincidence.

3 guys are sitting around discussing what Easter is. The 1st guys says, "I know what Easter is. It's when the easter bunny goes to each house and says trick-or-treat & people give him candy."

The 2nd guy goes, "NO, that is halloween. Easter is when the bunny goes house to house and leaves gifts for all the little good boys and girls."

The 3rd guy smiles patiently says, "No, that is Christmas. What Easter is is the day Christ was crucified. The Roman soldiers gambled for his clothes and they mocked him calling him King of the Jews. When he gave up the spirit Joseph of Aremathea requested his body and buried him in a tomb. On the third day Christ rose, and if he sees his shadow we have six more weeks of winter"

"I thought Easter was a shameless ripoff from the jewish Pesach?" Easters is a shameless ripoff off almost everything o.O
