Yes, because Jesus hiding the eggs was such a central part of the bible story... sheesh.

  Yeah, Jesus slides down the chimney hiding hardboiled colored eggs all over the place.  His reindeer stay on the roof.  The Easter bunny helps him find good places for the eggs. 

But oddly, when I was a kid, I colored those eggs.  At 10, as the eldest child, I started to help my parents hide those eggs (as a kid, I knew the good places).  Jesus and the Easter Bunny slid off my list of real things around that time.

War on Ishtar? Isn't she a war Goddess? That seems like a bad fight to pick...

Yes, scary.  She was one of the worst movies ever made "Ishtar (film)".
