Resurrection Sunday Observance or Happy Easter

If you are a Christian, do you celebrate ‘Happy Easter’ or do you observe Resurrection Sunday?  This is a question I recently pondered.  So, I did a little research to find the connection, or lack thereof.  This is what I came across on http://www.gotquestions.org:

“Biblically speaking, there is absolutely no connection between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the common modern traditions related to Easter Sunday. Essentially, what occurred is that in order to make Christianity more attractive to non-Christians, the ancient Roman Catholic Church mixed the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection with celebrations that involved spring fertility rituals. These spring fertility rituals are the source of the egg and bunny traditions.”

What are your thoughts?
